Hospice of St Francis News
FEBRUARY NEWS FROM THE HOSPICE OF ST FRANCIS
From February 2017 Edition | Boxmoor Direct
The Hospice provides care and support when it matters most to over 2,000 people a year living with, or affected by, a life-limiting illness in West Herts and South Bucks.
Our Bubble Rush is back for 2017 and this year it’s coming to Bucks too!
Open to all the family you can run, walk or dance your way through bubble stations as you are blasted by cannons blowing out crazy-coloured bubbles, covering you in safe, frothy foam. There are no age restrictions and the 5 km route is child friendly. All we ask is that you come and have fun and raise what you can in sponsorship for the Hospice.
Join us on Sunday 30th April at Gadebridge Park, Hemel Hempstead or on Sunday 9th July at Lowndes Park, Chesham. Register now at www.stfrancis.org.uk/bubblerush

Have you been meaning to write a Will for ages or had a recent change in your life? Make a Will Month helps make the process of writing or updating your Will straightforward and easy to arrange. Local solicitors will write a standard Will with no charge for their service, instead kindly asking you to make a donation that will go directly towards the work of the Hospice.
