As part of our Voices from the Village of Hope project, forty oral histories are being gathered.  We are recording the memories of people who have lived, worked or been treated at Papworth over the past century, since the first TB patients arrived in the village in 1918.

 

The project will put these memories into the context of nearly a century of treatment, care and rehabilitation for those living with medical conditions and disabilities in the United Kingdom
