Dear Reader

I am pleased to share this news with you which shows the great way your donations have been supporting people in our community during the death of a loved one.

Alieta Uelese puts it well in her letter when she describes the safe place that Cranford provided for her family.

With your help Cranford can continue to support families as they face the imminent death of a loved one. And with your help, they will always receive their care free of charge.

Thank you for your support. READ MORE
