The Big Bike Ride is attracting a lot of attention already, and it looks like this sponsored cycle event on Sunday 21 May will be very well supported. With several hundred cyclists expected to be riding one or other of the three challenging routes, Willow Wood have need of volunteer help on the day.
For the past four weeks a number of year 10 pupils from Copley Academy have been visiting Willow Wood to learn about Hospice care. Over this period, they have spent time with Day patients, staff and volunteers to gain a better understanding of the care and support offered to our patients and their families.
Thursday 9 March saw Tameside Radio come to Willow Wood for the day. Between 10am and 3pm there were interviews with patients, with their loved ones, with staff and with volunteers, all giving a real insight into what goes on in a typical day at the Hospice.
We're having a massive sale on 7 March at our new Distribution Centre and a Volunteer Open Day on 16 March at the same venue
