The hospice, based in Retford provides palliative care for patients in the district who have been diagnosed with cancer or a progressive long term condition, supporting the patient and their families to achieve the best quality of life.

Every year the charity needs to raise a minimum of £350,000 to support the hospice and the crucial services it provides.

There are many different ways to get involved and support the hospice and one of them is by becoming a Friend of Bassetlaw Hospice.

Bonney Baggaley, charity operations manager, said: “This is a great way of supporting your local hospice and the community it serves, and helping us to achieve our yearly fundraising goal.

“We see the massive difference that a annual donation of £15 can make to the charity and as a thank you members will receive a range of benefits.

"One of those benefits being access to a new and exclusive will writing service with Jones & Co Solicitors of Retford, our honorary solicitors.

"This service provides for a free initial consultation with Gareth Day together with the preparation of a basic will without charge.”

Members also get an exclusive pin badge, newsletter published quarterly with updates and exclusive offers including discounts and priority access to local event tickets.
