St Christopher’s Oral History Project

English Made Possible logo colour JPEG

Thanks to the generous support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund, St Christopher’s intends to tell the story of the Hospice by capturing oral history testimony from the variety of different people that helped shape the history and the life of the organisation.

These recordings will be made accessible to the public and culminate in a ground-breaking multimedia exhibition at St Christopher’s CARE, which will celebrate these different stories and the history of the Hospice.

There will also be a permanent static display in the main hospice foyer which will be a central focal point for the project and the continued life and history of St Christopher’s.

The project team and our dedicated volunteers are already conducting interviews for the project which will be catalogued and made available in the St Christopher’s CARE library, but if you would like to contribute by suggesting a name or putting yourself forward please do so by contacting us on the following email address:

oralhistoryproject@StChristophers.org.uk

We are looking to hear from as many voices as we can and your valuable contribution will help us tell the story of St Christopher’s.  

We would also like to share a film that was put together using an excerpt from an oral history interview with Senior Associate Gill Early, who describes how much she learnt from Dr Mary Baines as a Nurse whilst in the St Christopher’s Home Care team:
