Former Prime Minister, Sir John Major, who was born at St Helier and attended Cheam Common Primary School, returned to the area to launch the newly refurbished Jubilee Centre day-care facility at St Raphaels Hospice.


The charity, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary year, offers hospice care to those facing life-threatening illness living in Wimbledon, Merton, Sutton and Cheam.


Living with a life threatening disease is the toughest fight anyone will have to face, but here at St Raphaels Hospice, the message is that you dont have to face that fight alone, said Sir John.


Sir John met staff, volunteers and patrons at St Raphaels Hospice and was taken on a tour of the Jubilee Centre by Gail Linehan, Deputy Director of Care Services, St Raphaels Hospice.
