Williamsons Solicitors raised £760 for Dove House Hospice by selling some of our used mobile phones to staff after upgrading.
We’re really happy to be supporting this great local charity and this is just the latest funds raised following on from many of the other events we have taken part in this year.
Dove House Hospice is a charity providing excellent care for people in the local community with life limiting illnesses. They are specialists in palliative care, which is the total care of patients whose illness is no longer curable and for whom the goal must be quality of life.
Their services are available to anyone over the age of eighteen years who has an illness which can no longer be cured. Care is provided for patients with cancer, neurological illnesses, heart diseases, respiratory diseases, HIV/AIDS and many other illnesses. The care incorporates physical, social, psychological and spiritual support delivered by a multi-professional team who embrace the family and significant others throughout the patient’s illness.
Dove House Hospice is maintained by some Government funding but the majority of the running costs are raised in the local community and so there is no charge for any of their services.
Set in beautiful gardens, Dove House Hospice is a ‘home from home’ where patients and their families can feel at ease in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. The patient and their family are at the centre of everything they do; the patient – not the illness – is the focus of their care. They aim to give not only specialist care but special care, embracing our patients with warmth, understanding and friendship whilst offering them and their families guidance and support during difficult times.
