New historic archive created by Highland Hospice
The archive brings together documents and materials that help to tell the story of the hospice from its earliest days.
Open for public inspection in the Highland Archive Centre the new resource traces the hospice from its origins in the 1980s to the present day.
The Highland Hospice Community Archive resulted from a Highland-wide search, conducted by the hospice and the archive centre in a project led by retired archivist Colin Waller
He said: “Highland Hospice is a true pioneer with regard to the palliative care treatment and range of services it provides and how it cascades these services Highland-wide – particularly into remote rural areas.”
Hospice co-founder Cecilia Bottomley said: “It is fascinating to see its journey in the form of this community archive.”
