St Christopher’s Hospice joined with other London hospices
An end-of-life hospice with branches in Orpington and Sydenham joined with other London hospices to celebrate at the Pride in London Parade on Saturday.
Staff, volunteers, patients and families from St Christopher’s joined with hospices across the capital for the first time.
Andrew Goodhead, spiritual care lead at the hospice, said: “By taking part in the parade, we hope that we sent a strong message that hospices are here for everyone, whatever your background or community, whenever you need us.
“We also want to show that hospices are welcoming environments for people from LGBT+ communities to come and work.
Community nurse manager Ros Cook added: “The atmosphere at the parade was incredible, and we were so pleased to be there representing not just St Christopher’s but joining colleagues and friends from across London too.”
