30th Anniversary

March 1992 marked the opening of the doors of Bolton Hospice and the very first patients cared for, and now in 2022 we celebrate 30 years; our pearl anniversary, 30 years of caring from the heart and providing a generation of care to our community.

Throughout 2022 we will be hosting a range of special celebrations and opportunities for you to celebrate with us! From joining our Bow Ties & Pearls Anniversary Ball in March and hosting your own fundraiser to sharing your own hospice story with us on social media and purchasing a piece of history with our commemorative pin badges and 'Eternal Roses'

The last 30 years would not have been possible without the incredible support from our community, and the thousands of people just like you that have played a part in helping Bolton Hospice to grow into the place it is today, and the special place it holds in the hearts of our hospice family.

“2022 also marks my 10th anniversary at the hospice, a decade that has gone by in a flash and brought the most amazing sense of joy, fulfilment and achievement in being a part of something so special, at the heart of Bolton. Bolton is the friendliest, most sincere, generous, honest and frank place I’ve ever lived and worked.  The people of Bolton generously give their time, their fundraising efforts, their support and their love to Bolton Hospice, sitting as it does at the heart of the community.

I’m incredibly proud to be a part of something so special that is supported by the whole community, for the community, and long may that continue.”
