STAFF and volunteers from The Rowans Hospice have been recognised for their hard work as they become finalists for a charity award.

The hospice in Purbrook, which provides services and support for people living with life-threatening illnesses in Portsmouth and south east Hampshire, has been shortlisted in the Wessex Charity Awards 2012 in the Charity of the Year category.

The nomination recognises the hard work from staff and volunteers who have managed to maintain and further raise the profile of the hospice. It has also been praised for the development of its Dorothy’s Dream Hospice at Home appeal, which raises money to give people the chance to spend their last days at home surrounded by loved ones.

Rowans staff will find out if they have won when an awards night takes place on October 11 at Winchester Guildhall.

The winner receives a trophy and £500.
