Hope House: Tell us what hospice has meant to you

News | Published:

Over the years, many hundreds of local people have taken Hope House to their hearts.

And we would love to share some of your stories. Stories of fundraising, entertaining for the children, as volunteers, perhaps in the shops or gardens or any other way in which you are helping or have helped Hope House.

The fun, the frustrations, the successes of helping raise the money – in the first place to build Hope House and then to keep its doors open – have committed thousands over the years to doing everything possible to fund it.

There have also been generous donors with grants to boost the bank balance and once the value of Hope House was realised, everything from fun days to long-term commitments were on the cards.

The Shropshire Star has always done its best to record many of those events and we know of the way in which they have also brought communities together in support of the hospice. It would also be such a privilege to be able to tell some of the most special stories of all, from the families of the children who have used the hospice over the years. Changes you might have seen and what it has meant to you and yours.

Contact Shirley Tart at and if you have a favourite picture we may be able to use, send us that as well. Don't forget to also add details like full name, address and phone number.

We looking forward to hearing from you and finding out why Hope House is special to you.
