Office administrator, Janet Stephenson and store manager, Simon Fenwick visited the hospice to see first-hand how funds donated by the store can make such a difference to patient care and family support, offered by the hospice.

Staff at the store donated £1,000 to St Catherine’s using proceeds from the 5p carrier bag charge.

Janet and Simon 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

St Catherine’s head of community engagement, Emma Jacovelli, said: “We’re extremely grateful to Booths Fulwood, for the donation of £1,000 and to Janet and Simon for visiting the hospice, and seeing first hand all the services that St Catherine’s offers, as we strive to help more people across Central Lancashire have quality of life, to the end of life.”
