News: Thanks from the Hospice

Posted on 31st May 2017

We only look a little wet!  It’s a good job we did not wait until after the tournament to take the photos!

As I have said many times, the hospice is incredibly grateful to BHBPA for all its support of the hospice. The BHBiz Awards was such a fun event and to have raised £2,500 was phenomenal amount of money. We  included all the sponsorship money that I think Estie is sorting out?

We often get asked how the money is spent and I thought you might find it useful to see some of the costs that could be covered with the donation.

£600 could train a team of ten new hospice volunteers

£384 could pay for a Healthcare Assistant for a week

£318 could pay to clean the hospice for a week

£112 could pay for a home visit by our palliative consultant

£60 could pay for four complementary therapy sessions in the Beacon View Wellbeing Centre

£27 could pay for one hour of counselling

£23 could pay for one hour of support in a patient’s own home

£19 could pay for one hour of care from a hospice nurse

£10 could help provide a bath for a patient

 

I hope the event on Tuesday at Q Leisure went well.

 

Best wishes,

 

Carolyn
