Charity description

The Hospice Biographers logo
Within the next five years we will offer patients in 200 hospices across the UK the chance to have their life stories professionally recorded on audio for their families to enjoy for generations to come.

We hope that through our work we can bring a sense of purpose and wellbeing to patients; giving them a legacy to leave for their loved ones who are often left with unanswered questions and a longing to hear their voice again.

Routinely these days we retain numerous photographs of our loved ones, yet rarely their voices. We hope that in addition to helping hospice patients with closure, these audio interviews will also mean their families will be able to hear their voices and memories for generations to come. The service will be free of charge and will be offered to 200 hospices across the country within the next 5 years. Interviews will be conducted by volunteer regional and national journalists, who will be trained by the charity in regional clusters across the UK.

£ 10.00 - Will go towards the training of a biographer
£ 20.00 - Will fund the safe storage of a patient's life story
£ 50.00 - Will fund the cost of recording a patient's life story
£ 100.00 - Will fund a high quality digital recorder
