Some of the first packages to be delivered free have been the t-shirts for the Hospice’s Challenge 1000 campaign, where they are looking for 1000 people to accept the challenge to raise £100 for patient care.

The Earl Mountbatten Hospice is the Island’s only hospice and supports over 1,800 patients and their families, during the most vulnerable times of their lives.
