And the end of March, patients and staff were visited by Paralympic bronze medallist, Ian Marsden!
Ian, who won bronze in the K1 200m Paracanoe at the 2016 Rio Paralympics, visited patients in Day Therapies and the In-Patient Unit, showing them his medal and sharing his experiences.
Following his visit, Ian tweeted:
"Thank you to Katharine House Hospice for allowing me to visit today & for looking after my mum in her final hours."
We are so thankful to Ian for giving up his time to come and visit the hospice - it was great to welcome him and a real treat to hear all about his wonderful achievements!
