March 10th 2017Regional Marketing Officer James McCaffrey said, “Southern Area Hospice Services provides invaluable support and care to people living in the Southern Area Trust Area who are suffering from Cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease and other terminal illnesses.


“To provide this care our annual fundraising target this year is a staggering £2.5 million – which we could not achieve without the help and support of the local community.

“The funds raised by Gina’s Santa Cottage will go directly to paying for the continued provision of our vital services. Thank you to everyone who donated to this wonderful campaign.
