Herefordshire Society: Hospice gives thanks at Hereford Cathedral

A Service of Thanksgiving for 25 years of St Michael's Hospice was held at Hereford Cathedral.

A Service of Thanksgiving for 25 years of St Michaels Hospice was held at Hereford Cathedral. The Very Reverend, Michael Tavinor, Dean of Hereford gave the opening address at the service which contained both prayers for the future and memories from the past from founder members, doctors Richard Miller and Jeff Kramer and Jean Fisher, now Head of Education and who was Ward Sister when the hospice opened in 1984.

During the service Dr Jeff Kramer was presented with an award for 30 years of voluntary service to the Hospice by Lady Darnley, Lord Lieutenant for Herefordshire. A hospice choir made up of staff, volunteers and bereaved family members was accompanied by Tarrington Brass who lent a suitable air of occasion with a wonderful opening fanfare and musical support throughout the hymns. Danielle Johnston, aged 13, received a spontaneous round of applause for her beautiful reading of a poem she had written about her mother Claire who died in St Michaels in May.
