Hundreds of people flocked through the doors of Thorpe Hall to mark the Sue Ryder hospice’s 25th anniversary.

The mansion house was declared ‘access all areas’ giving people chance to explore rooms rarely seen by the general public.

It was 25 years ago that the initial team of two dozen staff, recruited by Lady Ryder, launched Sue Ryder’s incredible care into the Peterborough region. After a few short weeks of training, implementing processes and equipping the hospice, staff welcomed the first patients.

One of those original staff members, registered nurse Liz Pugsley, was on hand to talk to visitors at the open day. She was also presented with flowers and a special gift to mark her quarter of a century of service.

A photographic exhibition depicting Thorpe Hall through the ages drew much attention with a number of visitors recognising themselves and family members in pictures.

Mayor of Peterborough, John Peach, was also invited to cut the anniversary cake, baked in Thorpe Hall’s kitchen, and overall, staff were delighted with how the day went.
