Harry Wilson, Lynda Marshall, Linda McGregor and Rosemary Wilson from NI Hospice’s Carrickfergus support group drop purple pebbles into a cement slab which will be used to form part of the charity’s new facility.

The charity has reached a major milestone in its journey to rebuild the adult Hospice in North Belfast.

Construction work on the new state-of-the-art £13m facility began in March 2014 and is now entering the next phase of development.

The ground-breaking adult hospice, which is due to open its doors in late 2015, has been designed to meet the end of life care needs for the next generation and will be the first dementia friendly hospice in the UK and Ireland. INCT 48-720-CON
