The J's - Hospice and Respite Care for Young Adults

I recently heard a presentation about the progress with the plan to build a hospice/respite care centre in mid-Essex for young adults. There is only one other in the country (in Oxford) but a growing need. Children's wards or hospices for the elderly are rarely ideal for young adults in need of different surroundings.

The Js (named after Jonathan Whiffin) will be the appropriate alternative: The J's Hospice. They have just held a successful tea party as part of the ongoing campaign to raise the huge sums required (see Essex Chronicle).
