Booths worker sees first-hand how donations make a difference to St Catherine’s
A receptionist from Booths has visited St Catherine’s Hospice after staff made a generous donation to the charity.
Louise Berry visited the hospice to see first-hand how funds donated by supermarket employees makes a difference to patient care and family support offered by St Catherine’s.
Staff raised money for the hospice through a variety of activities including a staff shop, Christmas and Valentine’s raffles, bake sales and various other raffles.
Louise visited all the different services and departments of St Catherine’s Hospice, including;
- The Lymphoedema Clinic which treats cancer and non-cancer related lymphoedema
- Day Therapy, which people with life-shortening illnesses attend for a wide range of medical, nursing, physiotherapy and occupational therapy treatments, as well as complementary therapies
- Family Support Team which provides emotional, spiritual and practical support to patients, carers and families
- The Mill café and community hub, a social enterprise from which funds are ploughed back to the charity; from food and drink sales, room and café hire, an outside catering service, and therapies and social activities held there.
St Catherine’s fundraiser Hayley Jackson said : “We’re extremely grateful to Booths for the donation of £1,250 and also to Louise for visiting St Catherine’s and seeing for herself all the services we offer, as we strive to help more people across Central Lancashire have quality of life, to the end of life.”
