Arthur Rank Hospice is a charity and your support helps us to fund specialist care for our patients and their families.

Arthur Rank Hospice Charity supports people in Cambridgeshire living with an advanced serious illness or a life-limiting condition and those who need end-of-life care. Our ‘Outstanding’ services are provided free of charge to patients and their families.

It will cost £8.56 million 2020/2021 to run our services. We have currently secured £4.29 million from the NHS, meaning that £4.27 million needs to be raised through donations, fundraising activities and trading. We are extremely grateful to our local community for the continual dedication, commitment and generosity they show in supporting us to meet this target.
