Weston Hospicecare is hosting an exhibition in the Sovereign Shopping Centre to show supporters how their donations are put to use.
The hospice’s work started in 1989 as a Christian charity to care for people in Weston with cancer.
The hospice's focus now is to deliver care and support to anyone with life-limiting conditions, regardless of their religious beliefs.
Weston Hospicecare's exhibition will detail the charity's history, explain how it supports people today and set out its ambitions for the future.
It will be open in the food court from October 5-9 during Hospice UK’s Hospice Care Week and is free to attend.
Staff from the hospice will be manning the exhibition to enable visitors to find out more about the charity.
Project lead Paris May said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for hospice supporters and members of the public to learn about the impact of the hospice locally.
