I just want to thank everyone who supported the hospice, at last week’s BHBPA Pub Quiz at the Woolpack, I understand from my colleague Fiona that it was a very good, fun evening, and she was especially pleased to be able to join the team from HIlton Sharp and Clarke and come 5th!
I am pleased to let you know that £538.60 was raised from the raffle which is a terrific amount and I thought you mike like to know about some of our services and how your donation might be spent.
Over 80% of our patients are supported in their own home by our Clinical Nurse Specialists £95 will pay for one home visit.
Some of our patients benefit from physiotherapy or complementary therapies at a cost of around £37 per session.
We offer counselling to patients and their loved ones £44 will pay for a counselling session.
The average length of stay for an in-patient is around 13 days. Each day costs around £390.
I know you will understand what a significant difference this donation makes to us, and I would like to thank you all once again for supporting the hospice.
Perhaps you and some others from the association would like to come over to the hospice for a cheque presentation soon.
