Over 30 Years of Memories
Families, fundraisers and volunteers, everybody has a memory to share about Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice. Whether a loved one was cared for at the hospice or you have taken part in a fundraising event, every day precious memories are created with the support of the local community.
2021 is a special year for the hospice as we celebrate 30 years of care, but our history and memories extend much further than this. The idea to create a hospice in Carlisle began with one woman – Gill Melrose – in the early 1980’s and since then we have created thousands of memories.
To help with our anniversary celebrations we want you to share your memories. Whether this is a story, a picture or a video, we want you to share your memories during our special year.
Here is a snapshot of the memories we have kept in our archives.
