St Wilfrid’s Hospice has launched a Furnishings Appeal to help buy specialist items for patients to use in the new Hospice. The furniture includes state of the art Montcalm beds, hybrid Oska mattresses and recliner chairs, which will allow the new Hospice in Bosham to open its doors to full effect.
While as much of the existing equipment as possible will be moved, many other items are also required for both patients and visitors such as chairs, tables and TVs, meaning that donations of all sizes will make a real and tangible difference.
Alison Moorey, Chief Executive, said: “We’ve now reached that last crucial stage with the remaining £900,000 is needed in a very short time to ensure our new facility will be fully ready to welcome and care for patients. We’re asking anyone who supports the wonderful work of the Hospice to give whatever they can to help keep the fundraising momentum going in the final weeks of our appeal.”
St Wilfrid’s new purpose-built Hospice in Bosham is due to open in late Spring. Since opening in 1987 St Wilfrid’s has cared for over 17,000 patients living with terminal illnesses as well as supporting their loved ones.
The new Hospice will enable St Wilfrid’s to further develop its specialist care and expand on the variety of support services it can offer the community.
