St. Christopher’s Visit – Friday October 21st 2022

Women in Fellowship Annual visit to St. Christopher’s Hospice.

Friday October 21st 2022

Each year all our members get the chance to visit St Christopher’s to see the wonderful work they do, discover what a difference our money makes (perhaps taking back learning that could be shared with members’ local hospice) and be uplifted.

This year, the Annual Visit to St. Christopher’s Hospice (51-59 Lawrie Park Road, London SE26 6DZ) will take place on Friday October 21st.. Things are slowly returning to normal, so a maximum of 100 places are available! There is, therefore, no waiting list.
