Love Business Welcomes Hospice Hope To The 2022 Expo



A fantastic early Christmas Present was delivered to local charity Hospice Hope on the 22nd of December with planning permission being granted for the construction of their brand-new Day Centre in Swannington. The new building will provide a home for services for the charity which supports people across North West Leicestershire with life limiting conditions or who have been diagnosed with a condition that reduces their quality of life and their carers. Offering a wide range of services across the community, including counselling, befriending, support cafés, complementary therapies and online groups, the new Centre will give the charity a home for offering day care for guests and their carers in a purpose-built facility.

The project will be built on land provided by North West Leicestershire District Council and will be constructed by local housebuilder Bloor Homes. The two organisations have worked with Hospice Hope to create a truly collaborative community project which will provide services within the community for many years to come.

Charity Manager Jim Vickrage is looking forward to this year’s exciting plans;

“We are all tremendously excited that we can begin work on our new Day Centre and Charity headquarters in January 2022, with completion planned for the end of this year. After the events of the last couple of years, we are delighted to be able to announce some positive news for the community and this project will help us to provide our services to even more people in our own Centre. We are incredibly grateful for the support from North West Leicestershire District Council and Bloor Homes, whose generosity will make a difference for many years to come.”

The New Day Centre is to be called ‘Bright Hope House’ which will be a part of the plan for the charity to re-brand to its new name - ’Bright Hope’ during 2022. The charity is planning a busy year of fundraising for its new Centre, and would welcome enquires from groups, individuals and companies who would like to get involved with the new project and help the charity with its ambitious plans.
