50 years of St. Christopher’s Hospice

2017 August 7

Thank you David Oliviere for informing us about this historic event:

“I was invited to the 50th Anniversary service in Southwark Cathedral, London, to celebrate the 50 years of the founding of St Christopher’s Hospice. 50 of us were chosen to carry a candle in the procession marking each of the 50 years and representing a different strand of palliative care. The service ended with 50,000 petals drifting down for each of the patients cared for over the 50 years and a moment to reflect.”

St. Christopher’s Hospice was established in 1967 by Dame Cicely Saunders.
