Hospice of St Francis News



From May 2017 Edition | Boxmoor Direct

As the blossom flowers and the Bluebells appear, spring is definitely in the air.  To celebrate we have a host of outdoor activities coming up to help raise the over £5 million we need every year to provide our free, expert care for people living with life-limiting illnesses across Herts and Bucks and provide support for those close to them.  Do support us if you can!
