Hospice raises awareness of end-of-life care with dream wall

Stratford Editorial 2nd Jun, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

HOSPICES have been told running a marathon and visiting the seven wonders of the world are just some of the things people hope to do before they die.

Myton and The Shakespeare Hospice joined forces to ask what people’s dreams and aspirations were.

The charities hoped by asking people to think about their final wishes would help raise awareness about end of life care.

Shoppers in Stratford’s Morrisons wrote their dreams on a wall before talking to volunteers from the charities about death and bereavement.

Shakespeare Hospice chief executive Angie Arnold said: “We hope the wall encouraged people to share their hopes and dreams with us whilst equally recognising the ways in which the services available at both The Myton Hospices and The Shakespeare Hospice can help them or a loved one make plans for the end of their life.”
