A group from the Rotary Club of King’s Lynn were given a private guided tour of the new Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House at Hillington.
The tour, together with wives and families, was earlier this month.
The visit proved most appropriate as Emma Ward, granddaughter of club secretary Bob Ward presented a cheque to the hospice for £665.72, along with her friend Chad Seeley.
The pair had raised the money with a sponsored cycle ride from St Germans to Hunstanton and back, which was supported by members of the Rotary Club of King’s Lynn among others.
Those attending were welcomed and conducted over the new building by senior staff members who explained in detail the operational and administrative aspects of what is a “state of the art” establishment, designed to provide a wide range of unique services to the West Norfolk area for many years to come.
The new hospice opened towards the end of last year after moving from its previous base in Snettisham.
Everyone expressed their surprise at the scale, quality and purpose for which the building is designed.
The club and individuals in the group had already raised and donated funds and pledged their support for the project in the future.
