Worth anything ?
The value would be in development and even then it would be difficult to monetise as it doesn't bring up many advertises. There maybe an opportunity to develop a directory of hospices type site as there are over 4000 searches a month so maybe that is the way forward.
You may get lucky with an end user I am not sure.
The org.uk extension IMHO is ok on this name as for the most part many hospices are charitable organisations.
In terms of value it's difficult to say, if I was buying it for an information/feeder site to complement my disability/health niches I wouldn't pay more than low £xx but if an actual hospice wanted it or a developer who wanted to create a directory it could be worth £xxx.
There is also the general apathy to profiting from peoples misfortune to contend with and this limits the type of buyer interested in these kind of names.
Sorry not very positive but just my take on it, good luck with it.
I bought the domain many years ago to use as an alias for the site of a specific hospice I was working with. After a while they didn't want it and it has been doing nothing ever since. I'm not looking to make much money on it but, as it's going to expire soon, I thought I'd see what it was worth rather than just let it go for someone else to snap up!
As I say Steve it could be worth a couple of hundred to the right buyer so for the sake of renewal fees I would hang on to it. If you want to sell it to me for £20 I will have it for my collection but to be honest I am robbing you .
Thinks - I'll renew it and hang onto it for now.
