Arthur Rank Hospice Charity

Arthur Rank Hospice supports people in Cambridgeshire who are living with a life-limiting illness and those who need end-of-life care.

The Charity needs to secure £7.45 million every year to deliver our services free of charge to patients and their loved ones.  About half of this currently comes from statutory sources, with further funds raised thanks to the wider local community, whose support is critical in helping us make every moment count.
