The Perolls siblings are raising money through a limited edition recipe book created by their loving Mum, Carolyn Perolls as an Easter gift.

All the money raised will support the work of Hospices of Hope which is very close to all our hearts.

Hospices of Hope is a UK registered charity.

We believe that everyone facing terminal illness or living with a serious life- limiting condition should receive the best possible care available. Adults and children suffering in this way should have access to free care to help them manage their illness, pain and symptoms and to live out their lives with dignity.

Sadly, this level of care is not readily available in the countries in which we work. In Romania, Serbia and Moldova many are simply left to suffer without receiving any suitable medical or social care.

So we are dedicated to making a difference to these people. In 1992 we set up Hospice Casa Sperantei in Romania. That organisation now has two purpose built in-patient hospices, two training centres and two clinics based in very poor areas of Romania. We also work with BELhospice in Serbia which has a home care service in Belgrade and with small hospice organisations in Moldova. To date we have treated over 40,000 patients.

To ensure that hospice care reaches as many people as possible we have always placed major emphasis on educating and training medical professionals. Trained professionals – doctors, nurses, psychologists etc- return to their practices and introduce the new techniques learnt. We have trained over 20,000 professionals from more than 20 countries.

We empower our country partners so that ultimately, they become self-sufficient. Hospice Casa Sperantei now generates the majority of its day to day running expenses.

Looking to the future we are raising funds to open the first ever purpose-built, in-patient hospice in Serbia and a unique children’s hospice in Romania.
