Regular social activities are open to anyone and include:
Time to Talk
A chat group for previous and current patients, as well as people living in the community with a life-limiting illness. The group meets to share experiences, thoughts and advice about coping at this time. We know talking to with others in similar situations can be helpful.
Tea at Two
A monthly informal bereavement support group
Pilgrim Room Service
A short act of Christian worship, including Holy Communion, is open to everyone and held in the Pilgrim Room, on the first floor of the hospice. All are welcome, whether practising or non-practising Christians and from any faith background.
A 30 minute session using relaxation techniques to help increase calmness and reduce anxiety, stress or anger.
A fantastic opportunity to meet new people, get some fresh air and keep active. You are welcome to turn up for the walk on the day – there is no need to book. The group meet at 1.30pm in the Anniversary Centre before setting off on a walk around the beautiful Crystal Palace Park. The walks will last around 45 – 60 minutes and there will be a choice of routes around the park. Please be aware that longer routes may include steps and slopes. The group will end up back in the Anniversary Centre where you can have a cup of tea in the cafe and give your feet a well-deserved rest!
