Share your memories for our anniversary time capsule

News and Blog

We are calling on the local community to help mark our 40th anniversary by sharing their memories of our charity for a time capsule which will be buried at our new hospice site at Pease Pottage in July. 

2023 is a big year for us as we will be celebrating the opening of our new hospice in late Autumn and 40 years since we first opened our doors on Malthouse Road, Crawley.   

We would love to hear what the charity has meant to the community. All the contributions will be included in a ‘Book of Memories’ that will be placed in the time capsule. To submit your memories, we have created a page on our website here where you can: 

  • Send a photo of a loved one the hospice has cared for, with a short caption about that special person 
  • Send a short video message explaining why St Catherine’s is important to you   
  • Get creative! Write a short poem, paint a picture or compose a song. St Catherine’s would love to receive anything inspired by its work. 

Giles Tomsett, Chief Executive, says:

To mark our significant past and our exciting future, we will be burying a time capsule in our new hospice grounds at the start of July. The time capsule will be a wonderful legacy of our first 40 years. We would love to include as many contributions as possible for future staff, volunteers and supporters to uncover on our 80th anniversary in 2063!  

We really hope the local community gets involved with this exciting project and helps us remember this historic year for the charity.”
