About Hospices for Hope

Most Read

Hospices of Hope is a charity dedicated to bringing much-needed healthcare to impoverished communities in Albania, Moldova, Serbia and Romania.

The charity began work in Romania in 1992 after the end of the Cold War. At the time, there was no hospice care whatsoever available in the country, and Morphine was illegal. Cancer patients were in insurmountable agony and often just left to die alone.


About Greensand Ridge Distillery

Sustainability is of the utmost importance for Greensand Ridge, and they are the first micro-distillery in the UK to be 100% carbon-neutral, which is by far no mean feat. The Gins that Greensand Ridge craft are made from surplus produce from local farms, with the aim to help reduce the staggering 75% of food waste that occurs at the farm door.

Moreover, the distillery is powered by green renewable electricity, and their plastic waste is really quite low, with the team only putting out the equivalent of one bag of non-recyclable waste every 6-8 weeks. Geat tasting local gin that has minimal impact on the environment, can't really get any better than that. Find out more about Greensand Ridge Distillery.
