About the Hospice
The Hospice of St Francis helps 2,000 local people from St Albans, Harpenden, Hemel Hempstead and the surrounding area to live their precious lives well. Our free care for people managing, or recovering from, serious illness has many forms – care at the Hospice, at home, or in our Spring Centre - and is defined by each person's need. We ‘give life back’ by improving symptoms and helping people to achieve personal goals, whilst for others we make the end of life the best it can be. We’re also here for loved ones and children affected by loss, helping them to rebuild their lives and live through grief.
We love what we do and we love your support too. By supporting our Christmas Tree Collection you are ensuring that The Hospice of St Francis can help more patients and their families live their precious lives well.
