Join in and celebrate our 50th anniversary throughout 2017
Find out what's happening for our celebrations and how you can get involved
2017 is the 50th anniversary of St Christopher’s and, with a range of events to mark this special milestone, there are lots of opportunities for everyone to join in the celebrations!
The hospice was founded in 1967 by Dame Cicely Saunders so that people could die with dignity and without pain. The founder of the modern hospice movement, Dame Cicely changed end of life care around the world and her vision continues to inspire work today.
Martin Mears, Project manager, is well underway with preparing for the celebrations.
“We have lots of exciting things planned for our anniversary year. But we still we have room for more, and we need the help of each and every one of our supporters to make it a success!”
During 2017, we will be celebrating our achievements over the last 50 years, whilst looking to the future as we want to continue to improve hospice care, both in the UK and beyond.
In July, we’ll also be holding a multi-faith service in honour of our 50th anniversary in the incredible southwark cathedral.
