During these difficult times we miss our staff and volunteers who are not presently able to be with us.
We know many are still in touch with service leads and for those who are not, we want to give you as much information as possible to make you aware of what is happening in the hospice, our shops and retail and our clinical services out in the community.
We are working hard to ensure the safety of everyone including our staff, volunteers and supporters and we thank you for your patience during this time.
We have currently opened our Warehouse based on Brunswick Street, Blackburn as a donation centre whereby slots can be booked by clicking here… for a drop off time and date, and open to the public for sales from 10am – 4pm Monday to Friday.
Café Retreat remains closed to the public and there are as yet no plans to re-open for the foreseeable future.
