Robert Glass Opticians are proud to support local charities. For every pair of glasses we sell we contribute to our amazing chosen charities.
Dr Kershaw’s Hospice was opened in 1989 (therefore celebrating 25 years of care this year) originally built with a legacy from Dr John Kershaw, a local GP. The Hospice provides specialist palliative care for adults with non-curable, life-limiting illnesses in a peaceful and homely environment. Dr Kershaw’s Hospice is an independent hospice and a registered charity. It is partially funded by the Primary Care Trust, circa £800,000 per year, however, the major part of the annual budget of £1.9m is supported by fundraising activities, donations, legacies, income from the Hospice shops and revenue from the Hospice lottery.
