A Helping Hand For Bedford Hospice
Cathy Eaton from Tollers Solicitors Kempston, had great pleasure to hand over a cheque for £1,989 to the Bedford DayCare Hospice. The money was raised during a ‘Free Will Week’ when Tollers prepared Wills in exchange for donations to the Hospice.
About The Hospice
Bedford Daycare Hospice is an independent charity working with other organisations and provides care for those with a life limiting illness in Mid and North Bedfordshire. The Hospice was founded in 1992 and has helped hundreds of people with cancer and other life limiting illnesses and their families and carers. The demand for this kind of service continues to grow and for this reason Tollers have been happy to assist with their fundraising for a second year.
The Hospice very much relies on the financial support and generosity of the people in the community, it is how they are able to continue to deliver such a unique service to the highest standard.
They offer respite care, counselling and psychological care. There are complimentary therapies available which include: Reiki, massage, facials, manicures. These services (amongst many others) are invaluable for patients with life limiting illness or who are in remission from disease and need help to re-build confidence. Above all the hospice provides emotional support not only to patients but to their families and carers.
Cathy Eaton says: “Illness affects us all at some time in our lives and it is important that as a community we all do what we can to ensure that there will always be the help and support there when we need it.” Tollers have been happy to support Bedford DayCare Hospice and will continue to do so in the future.
The Hospice have many fund-raising events in the calendar for the year, from Coffee Mornings, Black Tie events, Quiz nights, Curry Evenings and many, many more. Keep your eye out – there is something for everyone! The Bedford Daycare Hospice event calendar can be found here.
