              • 'Always There to Care' - Willen Hospice 2012 version 3.0


                from Megalith TV / Added

                9,804 Plays / / 0 Comments

                This is an updated 2012 version of the first film that Megalith TV made as giving-in-kind for Willen Hospice. The story is about passion, love, commitment and always being there to care. Told in the words of the patients, staff and friends of Willen Hospice in Milton Keynes. Funding from government only amounts to 24% (figures correct at 2010) of the yearly total requirement of Willen Hospice, therefore they need to rely heavily on legacy income, charitable donations, fundraising, charity shops and their weekly lottery income. So this is part education film, part appeal. Please encourage anyone you know to watch it and perhaps to consider supporting Willen Hospice and also the wider hospice movement; they really do need the support of people like you. The song and music was written by John Hawkes and performed Gilly Giddings, whos father Fred Mitchel appears in the film . Watch out for more Willen Hospice films from Megalith TV.
