Our 50th Anniversary

"We have lots of exciting things planned for our anniversary year. I look forward to helping you celebrate 50 years of your hospice, your way"

Jess Milton, 2017 Project Manager and
Adelle Sanders, Special Events 2017 Project Co-ordinator (tel 0208 768 4645)


We are producing a special book, a series of podcasts and short films to celebrate our history, break down some myths about hospice care and show the rich diversity of our work, our patients and the people behind St Christopher’s.

We also hope you can support these projects by sharing your photos or stories with us.

For more information about any of these events, if you have any suggestions to share or you want to get involved in St Christopher’s 50th anniversary celebrations, please contact our 2017 Project Manager on 020 8768 4662 or at  2017@stchristophers.org.uk
