Often a gift in a legacy comes out of the
blue. One such nice surprise was the
legacy of the Goodyer family. The Friends
were then challenged with finding the best
use of their generous gift.
After discussions with the hospice's own Dr David Oliver, a neighbouring property in High Bank was purchased and named Goodyer House by The Friends. The house was officially opened in 2011 by the Bishop of Rochester and has provided counselling rooms and overnight accommodation for families of patients receiving care on our wards.
