St Michael's Hospice (Hereford)

We offer a range of services to people with terminal illness

Charity Registration No. 511179


We have cleared the £25k mark - bless you all for that incredible support - and the facility is open a while longer in case any of you wish to order a DVD, free with a donation!!!  Keep it coming chaps.  And here's the story - read on!

Two members of the HatBand, George Cooper and Charles Sanders have needed the Hospice.  George's wife Sally died there in June 2009 just after their second wedding anniversary, and Charles' wife Nic passed away there in October 1992, both having experienced the exceptional love and care of the Hospice teams.  

You can read more of George's story as carried by the Hereford Times by clicking here - George & Sally

 To see Charles pay a JIG ( or it might have been a reel) please visit

Two sell-out Concerts in Hereford for HatBand fans - captured on the DVD, followed by a very special concert on Sally's Birthday, in the Wyeside in Builth, where she acted and danced, and was a real star.

Help us close this off by exceeding the £25k mark for the Hospice.
