The Mill is more than a café – it is a vibrant hub in Central Lancashire which is here to serve and support the local community.


Owned and managed by St Catherine’s Hospice, it extends the support of the charity in a more informal way, at the same time as providing an introduction to the work of the hospice. In this way, The Mill helps to break down barriers and stigma which can still surround the word ‘hospice’.
