Brick by Brick Appeal

our capital appeal to build a new Hospice at Christchurch Hospital

Patient referrals to our service have tripled in the last ten years. The existing Macmillan Unit at Christchurch was built in 1974 and is now far too small for the number of patients under our care. We have been setting aside funds to build a new hospice for many years. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters we have raised £5m so far. However we need a further £5m to build a hospice that will meet the future needs of our community, so we have launched our capital appeal ‘Brick by Brick’.
