Back in 1988 the idea of providing a hospice in the Conwy area was born. Land which was once a donkey paddock, was bought from Gwynedd Council for a nominal fee and the building cost £1.9million to build. Construction work on St David’s Hospice began in June 1997, which saw BBC Newsreader Martyn Lewis and numerous mayors and civic leaders start the first phase of a massive task. In 1998, the Hospice was completed and opened in sections, starting with Day Care. St David’s was officially opened by HRH the Prince of Wales in 1999.
