Thorpe Hall Hospice
One hit wonder Chesney Hawkes was at number one in the charts, cinema goers were flocking to see Thelma and Louise and Prime Suspect had millions of television viewers gripped. At the same time Thorpe Hall Hospice was opening its doors for the first time.
In April 1991, after around five years of renovation and refurbishment under the watchful eye of Lady Ryder herself, Thorpe Hall welcomed its first patients.
The Sue Ryder team are marking the occasion by opening the doors of the hospice on Wednesday, April 20. There will be three sessions:
During each there will be chance to take a tour of Thorpe Hall - including the floors previously used as wards - and the gardens. A photographic exhibition will show Thorpe Hall through the ages and staff will be on hand to share plans for the future and talk about how visitors can get involved.
There’ll be anniversary cake too! Do drop in.
