  • Media Statement on Assisted Dying

    Assisted Dying      

    Les Bourgs Hospice reflects the national ethos of Hospice and palliative care, as defined by the World Health Organisation, which is, " it intends, neither to hasten or postpone death". This philosophy is a cornerstone of Hospice care. It is the view of Hospices nationally, that very careful consideration would need to be given with regard to the effect of any new law to patients, services and staff. However, in stressing the value of good palliative care at the end of life, our aim is similar to those who are bringing this matter before the States in that, we want to make available to all a compassionate and good death. Therefore, we would welcome ever closer working with everyone to help ensure this.

    Any clarification required is by email to:

  • Mike Tanguy retires at Chairman of Les Bourgs Hospice

    After 16 years as Chairman of Les Bourgs Hospice Mike Tanguy MBE is stepping down.  Mike took the chair in 2001 but first became involved in the Hospice in 1996 when he joined the board of governors. 

    Mike was a key driver in the rebuilding of Andrew Mitchell House to make it a hospice fit for the 21st century.

    Mike felt it was now the right time to step down, he says:

    "it's the best possible time.  We have built and paid for a fantastic facility that is fit for the 21st Century, we have an incredible nursing team, a wonderful Friends group and some amazing volunteers.  We have reorganised our retail offering and brought it all together in a much large building with plenty of parking, expanded our day patient service, although there is more to do in that area in the future."

    Mike will miss the Hospice though and says:

    "I enjoy every moment that I walk into the hospice.  The time I spend with patients, with the team, the governors, the Friends and the volunteers.  It might surprise people but the hospice is a happy place.  It is a super building, but it wouldn't be the special place it is without the people who work and volunteer there".

    Mike will fill his days with his next challenge of Chair of the Les Platon Residential Home which he says will be his last challenge.

    Jo Boyd MBE comments:

    "It has been such a privilege to work with Mike.  His enthusiasm, commitment and encouragement have been outstanding.  We could never have achieved what we have without him.  However, he leaves behind a wonderful legacy of his work as Chairman and we all wish him well for the future."

  • The Pootelists return from Les Bourgs

    The Pootelists return from Les Bourgs

    Friends Andrea Nightingale, Tim Loveridge, Mark Torode and Richard Freeman ride together every week.  They call themselves "The Pootleists".  This May, they have decided to ride from Les Bourgs to Les Bourgs for the cause.  The destination was easy.  That wonderful haven in St Andrew that has provided solace and comfort to so many Guernsey families at the most difficult times.  The origin was more difficult.  France was the obvious choice.  There are many Les Bourgs in France.  And so, to make the ride a real challenge, and confirming the slightly wonky nature of these four Guerns, they chose a tiny hamlet called Les Bourgs in Mezilhac, located deep in a valley between France's mountainous Massif Central region and the Alps.  What's more, the day before the challenge proper, the Pootleists will be warming up with their very own Prologue, by cycling up the iconic Mont Ventoux.

    The ride back to St Malo will be more than 600 miles.  The aim is to cover around 100 miles each day.  The route planner suggests over 35,000 feet of climbing, which is the cruising altitude of a Boeing 747.  They will be supported by Les Bourgs fundraising stalwart and Rock to Rocque sponsor Mira Domaille and her husband Phil in a van kindly provided by Bougourd Ford, and Den McKane driving the support car.  Between them, they will be sourcing sustenance and shelter over the journey.  The riders are particularly looking forward to eating as much as they like without putting any weight on.

    They returned to Les Bourgs Hospice on Sunday 21st May looking way too bright eyed and bushy tailed considering their amazing achievement, well done to them all - fabulous effort - what will they do next I ask myself??

  • Dave Birch completes his Laser 150 challenge

    After many months of frustration with the weather (which has been great for the rest of us, but not windy enough to sail!) Dave finally left Falmouth Harbour on Monday Morning, saililng to Eddystone Lighthouse where he met his support boat then headed to France.  The wind dropped while crossing the shipping lanes and he had to paddle his way through the boats, but he carried on and after France headed towards Guernsey.  The plan was to arrive at 1800 - 2000 hrs in Guernsey harbour but once again the wind dropped and his arrival was delayed until 0115hrs on Wednesday morning, a total of 143.2 miles was sailed with the final couple of miles done under Tow from his support boat due to exhaustion, hallucination and lack of wind!


    After 37 hours in a boat 1.5ft x 3ft he was looking decidedly amazing when i caught up with him and he was elated with his achievements, as he should be!  Dave has raised more than £7000 for Les Bourgs Hospice and we cannot thank him enough.
