How Funding Has Made A Difference
We are extremely grateful to the Trusts and Foundations who have awarded us funds in the past. Thanks to these generous benefactors, we’ve been able to carry out many important projects that have significantly improved areas of the Hospice.
Take a look at the recently funded projects below and how they’ve helped make a difference to our patients.
IT can make a difference
This project was kindly funded by Towergate Foundation and Hospice UK, who awarded us £2,511 to help update and improve our technology equipment.
The money enabled us to buy three Apple iPad Airs to help patients get online and to help them stay in touch with families, friends and loved ones. Laptops are often difficult for our weaker patients to sit up and use, so tablets are a lighter and much handier solution.
The money was also spent on setting up a Sonos System for use in our complementary therapy treatment rooms. We previously only had one old hi-fi system, which didn’t play CDs well and posed problems when there was more than one therapy session running at a time. The new Sonos System means streamed music can be linked to multiple rooms, enhancing the sound quality and helping our therapists carry out their work.
Boiler project for the Inpatient Unit
Huge thanks to Garfield Weston, who awarded us a £15,000 grant which will go towards our new condensing boilers for the Hospice In-Patient Unit. The boilers form part of our Energy Redevelopment Project and will make a big difference to our energy usage.
