Arthur Rank Hospice supports people in Cambridgeshire living with a life-limiting illness and those who need end-of-life care. Our services are provided free of charge to patients and their families. Our aim is to provide the highest quality care, helping them to make every moment count.

We care for people at the Hospice in Cambridge, the day treatment centre in Wisbech and in patient’s own homes through the Arthur Rank Community team. The support provided by our inpatient unit, day therapy services and Hospice at Home is practical, holistic and tailored to the individual. Programmes may include psychological support, physiotherapy, complementary therapy, occupational therapy, rehabilitative support, counselling, bereavement and spiritual support.

Arthur Rank Hospice 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 through our Bistro, education services, conference facility and hairdressing salon. The remainder is raised thanks to the wider local community who are motivated to ensure that work of the hospice continues: amongst other things they donate to our shops, take part in our events, take on personal challenges, hold their own fundraisers or leave gift in their Will. We are constantly looking for new opportunities to sustain funds, so we can keep providing and developing our vital services long into the future.

Arthur Rank Hospice – and the Charity’s mascot, Arthur Bear – are teaming up with the North Pole to bring the magic of Christmas to Cambridgeshire this December with ‘Letters from Santa’. The Charity is taking applications for personalised letters, which will then be sent from Santa directly to the special little people in your life between Saturday 1 and Tuesday 18 December. Amy, mum of Joseph (then 7 years old) and Caoimhe (then 5 years old), who were lucky enough to receive a personalised letter last year, said: “My kids loved receiving their personalised letters from Santa; it really …
