Come and hear acclaimed author Robert McCrum


Join Arthur Rank Hospice Charity's Literary Evening next Thursday (12 April 2018).

Robert will be talking about his latest best-seller, Every Third Thought, in which he writes about the Hospice. Robert’s relationship with the hospice dates back to his mother’s time as an almoner at Arthur Rank House in the 1980s.

A BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week, Every Third Thought tackles the perennial questions we all want to ask about the ‘end game’, and has been described by reviewers as ‘fascinating’, ‘thoughtful, subtle, elegantly clever and oddly joyous’, and ‘simply stunning’.

Hearing from Robert in one of the places close to his heart will make the evening very special, so come and join in this one-of-a-kind event.

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.

We care for more than 4,100 patients each year at our Hospice in Cambridge, the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech and in patients’ own homes via the Arthur Rank Community Team. This care supports people to improve their quality of life and fulfil their end of their life choices.

It will cost £10.5 million in 2021/2022 to run our services, which are provided free of charge to patients and their loved ones. We have currently secured £6.98 million from the NHS, meaning that £3.52 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.
