Introducing the Pear Tree Fund
The Pear Tree Fund offers emotional, physical and practical support to people reaching the end of their lives so that those who wish to can die in the comfort and security of their own homes.
Originally known as Halesworth Community Nursing Care Fund (HCNCF), the charity was set up in 1989 and is entirely funded by people’s generosity.
We are now expanding the services we provide by building an innovative one-stop-shop for people who have been diagnosed with cancer or other life-limiting illnesses.
Called The Pear Tree Centre, it will provide a wide range of valuable services closer to home for anyone from north east Suffolk or south Norfolk, including help understanding a diagnosis, bereavement support and counselling.
We are asking for your support to help us continue providing these vital services for people in our rural community.
Covid-19 – temporary closure
To protect our staff and public during the Covid-19 pandemic, we have closed the Pear Tree Centre.
Anyone who needs to access our information and support services should email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your understanding during what is a difficult time for all of us. We will reopen as soon as the government advises that it is safe to do so.
