As a supporter of Hospice care and the charity HospiceUK who we have held a collection for at our annual dinner and awards for the past few years, Protection Review is pleased to share the news that Hospice UK featured as the BBC's Lifeline Appeal for February.

A moving nine minute film was broadcast on Sunday 17th February at 4.50pm on BBC1 and then repeated on BBC2 on Wednesday 22nd February at 1pm. 

TV personality and broadcaster Gethin Jones presented touching stories from a children's hospice in Scotland (Robin House in West Dunbartonshire) and an adult's hospice in London (Royal Trinity in Clapham).

The film focuses on the incredible difference hospices make to people's lives and the breadth of services offered in both children's and adult's hospices, with a particular emphasis on the importance of volunteers.

All donations to the Appeal will go towards supporting hospices and championing these pioneering volunteering programmes.

You can view the film on the BBC website after its first broadcast at

We would encourage you to share the film as widely as possible to raise awareness of the invaluable work the 220 member hospices do in their local communities.
