It was a pleasure to work with Richardson’s. They were very responsive and helpful. We had quite specific ideas of the look we were trying to achieve and they worked with us to enable us to create this. The quality of everything we have purchased has been excellent and their aftercare has also been good.
Dr Lynn Morgan, CEO, Arthur Rank Hospice
On 22 December 2014, Arthur Rank Hospice were delighted to receive confirmation that their plans had been approved by both South Cambs District Countil committee and Eric Pickles MP, the Secretary of State.
Building commenced on 7 May 2015 and by July 2015, £6.4 million had been raised to fund the £10.5 million project. By November 2015, more than £6.61 million had been raised. On 15 December 2015 the hospice was declared watertight, at which point £7.2 million had been secured to fund the project. May 2016 saw the fund raised increase to £7.7 million and a real milestone for the Hospice, meaning less than £3 million left to go!
On 14 October, the state-of-the-art building was handed over to the Charity, two weeks ahead of schedule and on budget.
On 11 November 2016, doors opened to patients, with services and care now being delivered from our new home at Shelford Bottom: a spacious, attractive and therapeutic environment: designed with great consideration for the patient’s need, with vastly improved facilities allowing for increased service capacity.
