We are delighted to say that our project to improve the play area at our Tea Room is now finished. Our existing play area was rather limited but now, thanks to the Bags of Help scheme we are able to provide a safe environment for parents to bring children of all ages as well as support our charity Tea Room and raise significant funds for Dove Cottage Day Hospice. Thank you Tesco!!!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the 20p jar that was sat in our lounge throughout 2016, you all collected £420.38 which is a fantastic amount.
Every penny raised helps us to continue offering our hospice services free of charge to those living with life-limiting illnesses in the local area.
We do offer ‘at home boxes’ where you can collect any spare change and donate to Dove Cottage, you can pick these up in any of our shops or from the hospice, if you are unable to get to any of these outlets we will be happy to send one out in the post.
Please phone 01949 860303 to request your box.
It is now the end of the year for us all here. We have had such a lovely party week, Christmas dinners, pass the parcel and a visit from a very special guest (Santa).
We’ve thoroughly enjoyed 2016, it has been an eventful year, we celebrated our 20th Birthday. We also have a second Day Hospice over in Ridlington, Rutland which will start with guests attending on January 3rd – very exciting.
Thank you to you all for such amazing support, we really couldn’t do it without you.
With every good wish for Christmas and the New Year!
