St Ann’s Hospice is a charity that provides much-needed care to those affected by life-limiting illnesses, whilst also providing specialist support to their families, friends and carers. We’re proud that our hospice is one of the oldest in the UK, and this year we’re celebrating our 50th birthday. We’d love you to join our anniversary celebrations by taking part in the Manchester Virtual Walk. Your support will mean we’re able to continue providing outstanding care to people who need it most, at a time which for many is one of the most vunerable of their life.

Over the 50 years we’ve been caring, our ethos has remained the same – out patients and their loved ones are at the heart of everything we do. We treat everyone we support as the individual they are, adapting our approach to meet their personal wishes and needs.

We provide the best quality of life to our patients throughout their illness – whether that’s early in their diagnosis, through treatment or beyond - by meeting their unique physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs whilst maintaining their dignity.

There are many misconceptions about hospice care and it’s really important to us that we continue to share stories and experiences, helping to dispel myths and encourage those who may be apprehensive about visiting us to get in touch. We have a dedicated space on our website that allows our patients, families and carers to share their stories and experiences of St Ann’s Hospice, and are always proud to hear their feedback on how our specialist teams have supported them through what are often extremely difficult times.

To our patients, we are more than just a charity, and every donation, fundraising event and sign-up to our weekly lottery helps us to continue to provide outstanding care and support to both patients and their loved ones. Now, more than ever, we need your help to maintain our services to our patients, so huge thanks for taking part in the Manchester Virtual Walk.

We can’t wait to see everyone taking part on our Big Birthday Weekend!
