ST BARNABAS: Learn about hospice's services and take on Bodger's Challenge

I'm pleased to say that, following the success of the first two, we have our third MyLife event coming up in the St Barnabas House Day Hospice on Monday, May 23.

MyLife is open to people recently diagnosed with life-limiting illnesses and a friend or family member.

The events are intended to celebrate positive living while giving a broader understanding of the services offered by St Barnabas House hospice.

The Day Hospice team fully understand that the idea of coming to a hospice, especially for those newly diagnosed, can be a scary prospect, so we have planned this series of light-hearted events to serve as an informal introduction, and to demonstrate that the hospice is about living as fully as possible.

The events are targeted towards different groups of people, some of whom may not normally wish to come to the hospice for fear of what it represents, or for those who simply do not know about the services offered.

It is hoped that through these events people will be better placed to make informed decisions should they need our services in the future.

This particular MyLife event is for the man who likes a challenge!

Called ‘Bodger’s Challenge’, it will be a day of creative problem solving within a team, and even includes a fish and chip lunch!

I might even go along myself and learn a few things!
