Hunmanby Cancer Fund has sponsored a day of the Saint Catherine’s ‘Hospice at Home’ service by giving a generous donation of £5,000.
Members of the group visited Saint Catherine’s to hand over the donation, meet the teams and learn more about all the services on offer – in particular Hospice at Home, which covers areas such as Filey and Hunmanby.
The Hospice at Home service provides support to allow more patients to remain in their own homes at the end of life.
For those in the final stages of any terminal illness, this service gives access to clinical expertise and home visits at any hour of day or night.
The service is provided in partnership with Marie Curie and works closely with district nurses to provide co-ordinated services to patients.
Hospice at Home costs £5,000 a day to run and is provided at no cost to patients, carers and families.
If you would like to help by raising funds, call the fundraising department for support and advice on (01723) 378406.
