Future’s bright for Ulverston hospice as £1,000 gift goes to decorating
Last updated at 09:24, Monday, 04 August 2014
THE in-patient unit at a hospice is to be decorated and refitted to give it a brighter look.
St Mary’s Hospice has received £1,000 as part of the monthly cheque presentations by the Lake District Farmers Armstrong Family Charitable Fund to go towards this project.
The money was raised at an annual celebrity chef event held in Dalton, hosted and sponsored by Clarence House Country Hotel and Restaurant.
Zoe Guest, the lead income manager at St Mary’s Hospice, in Ulverston said: “This donation will go towards fixtures and fittings on the existing in patient unit.
“Lake District Farmers have been very supportive of the hospice and we are very appreciative to be chosen to receive this donation.
“We have wanted to do this on the ward for some time.
“We want to make the unit brighter and less clinical and give it a more homely feel.
“We also want to make each room different, so we will have a different feature wall of colour in each room.
“We are making sure we improve the ambience, make the rooms brighter and better equipped.”
This year marks the 25th anniversary of St Mary’s Hospice, which is situated in Ford Park in Ulverston.
The charity has launched a new design and logo, an extension of our single forget-me-not emblem.
St Mary’s Hospice is also very close to opening its new building which will provide dedicated Day Care facilities for patients with life-shortening conditions and their families.
The building also includes a new state-of-the-art education centre for ongoing training and development of nursing staff across South Cumbria.
Open days will be arranged for some point in August and an official opening is due to take place in September.
