Dove Cottage Rutland Fundraising Events


Dove Cottage Day Hospice Ridlington Rutland

Set in the beautiful countryside between Ridlington and Brooke, this haven of tranquillity (and laughter) is possibly the ‘best kept secret’ in Rutland.

Open for just a year, we offer a much needed day service for individuals with a life limiting illness and support for their carers and families.

Carers value our respite service and guests enjoy the opportunity to share experiences with others in a similar situation.

A freshly cooked lunch is offered, plus a range of activities and therapies, including massage, yoga and craft.  Many guests just enjoy sitting quietly and enjoying the wonderful scenery.

The Joint Managers are experienced in palliative care and liaise closely with each guest’s medical support team.

Referral to Dove comes mainly through medical practitioners, but individuals can also contact us directly as a ‘self referral’.

There is no charge to people who use our service.  We are fully dependent on generous donations and fundraising activities.  We have had a number of local businesses who have chosen us as their charity of the year.

We are so grateful to businesses, individuals and groups who choose to support our work.

On the 7th JULY we are holding our popular “Pimms and Strawberries” Afternoon Tea at the day hospice,  a perfect opportunity to have a look at our facilities , enjoy home cooked cake and scones and support a fundraising event!

“Pimms and Strawberries” Afternoon Tea £8.  Children under 10 free.

Tickets from Dove Rutland and Committee members.

Fundraising is so important. Without help from our supporters Dove Cottage Day Hospice couldn’t provide the vital hospice care and services we offer. All our services are free of charge to those living in this area who are suffering from a life threatening or life limiting illness.
