Our ‘Furnish with Love – Give the Gift of Comfort’ Appeal was launched to help raise the vital funds needed to furnish our new in-patient family lounge, after the effects of Covid left our new build with an unexpected shortfall.
When we reached out to our community, to ask for your help in furnishing our in-patient family lounge, we could never have known that so many kind and caring people would respond with love and give the Hospice a gift, the ‘Gift of Comfort.’
Our community’s generosity has raised over £35,000 for the ‘Furnish with Love – Give the Gift of Comfort’ Appeal, which has enabled us to furnish our new, fantastic in-patient family lounge with specialist furniture. We now have sofas and armchairs for comforting family cuddles, and dining areas for those special family meals and so much more. Plus, due to the unbelievable generosity of our local community, we’ve raised enough money to add additional furnishings and home comforts to the rest of the Unit, ensuring a comfortable, relaxed environment for all our patients.
Your help has given our patients the ‘Gift of Comfort’ and will enable them to spend precious time with their loved ones in a comfortable, safe, homely environment, it will mean so much to them and their families for years to come!
We could not have achieved all of this without your support so thank you from the bottom of our hearts from all of us at Dr Kershaw’s Hospice!
