Rotary in the Community

Supporting Dorothy House Hospice


Dorothy House Hospice provides compassionate care and support for people in our community with a life-limiting illness. Their focus is on quality of life, helping patients to live well and die well.  Caring and supporting patients and their families across a 700sq mile area, including Bath & North East Somerset (B&NES) and parts of Wiltshire and Somerset. Their services are provided whenever and wherever they are needed; at home, in the Hospice, or at one of their outreach centres. They respect the uniqueness of each patient and their families, and empower them to choose the type of care they receive.

The Rotary Club of Bradford on Avon is proud be associated with and continue with its support for the Dorothy House Hospice.  Rotarian Bob Coulthard has been the mainstay of the Club’s support through his regular visits to help maintain the gardens.  The Club has also contributed with clearing overgrown parts of the ground as well as fund raising, helping with Dorothy House events, donating grants and collecting Christmas trees as part of Dorothy House’s own fund raising efforts during January each year.

The worked piece of Blue Lias at the main entrance to the hospice was found when clearing overgrowth. The stone was passed to James Long monumental masons in Trowbridge who polished, engraved and illuminated it. The plinth on which it sits was constructed of stone located on site and laid in a similar fashion to the existing wall on the other side of the entrance. Construction of the entire structure was undertaken by the Rotary Club of Bradford on Avon.
