St John’s Hospice are delighted to have been shortlisted in the 2019/2020 Westmorland Shopping Centre Charity Partnership in Kendal.
We need YOU in order to win this fantastic opportunity for St John’s! Please visit the Westmorland Shopping Centre Facebook Page and cast your vote in the comment section of the competition post with a Purple Heart.
The residents of Kendal and the South Lakes benefit greatly from access to the services of St John’s Hospice. With this charity partnership we will be able to highlight the range of support we offer to patients and families across the area; for example the Hospice at Home nurses, support calls, Hospice neighbours and Night Sitting services. St John’s would benefit hugely from the opportunities to not only make people aware of what is available to support families in the area but also the amazing fundraising events that people can participate in, which are not only very enjoyable but also raise money to enable us to keep offering these services.
Kendal residents visit and benefit from the Hospice In-Patient Ward where patients come to us for symptom management, treatment and end of life care. Our Hospice at Home team also covers Kendal and further afield – it is a dedicated unit of healthcare professionals who visit patients in the comfort of their own home to offer expert palliative care at the end of life. Our Day Hospice is also available to Kendal residents and provides a place for people to come and talk to others going through similar experiences to them, make friends, take part in group exercises or perhaps relax with a complementary therapy session.
We’ve been nominated along side two other great charity organisations – The Lighthouse Community Mental Health Hub and Royal Voluntary Service. The best of luck to these great organisations and many thanks to Westmorland Shopping Centre for this opportunity.
Please vote for St John’s Hospice! The winner will be announced on Monday 1st July.
