Making a Difference

It was some time ago that the trust invited applications for grants towards pain relief projects and we are delighted to announce that 5 applications were approved, funds have been transferred and your generosity is making a difference to real lives.

  •  St. Raphael’s Hospice have benefited with new syringe drivers – Often taken for granted but hugely important in the fight against pain.
  • Shooting Star Chase (Children’s Hospice) have also received new syringe drivers – These include a portable one that will help give the young patients the freedom of movement they deserve.
  • Sam Beare and Woking Hospice have received specialist mattresses – Again sometimes taken for granted, modern air mattresses really do make a difference to the bed ridden in pain.

Other successful applicants sort funding towards staff or training:

  • Phyllis Tuckwell’s Complementary Therapies are proven to reduce stress and alleviate pain.
  • Finally 8 of the team at St Catherine’s Hospice have attended an Advanced Pain and Symptom Management course, the benefits of which will be felt by numerous patients for many years to come.

In total nearly £28,000 has been paid all funded by your generosity.

On behalf of the all the Trustees a huge thank you to all our supporters.
