Torquay nurses kitted out thanks to £1000 donation
HOSPICE at Home nurses from Rowcroft Hospice have picked up their kit bags thanks to a £1,000 donation from Western Power Distribution.
The nurses each need a vital kit bag packed with equipment used for their visits to patients' homes.
Jill Stevens, from the hospice, explains: "It costs £10,500 per week to run the Hospice at Home service so donations like the one from WPD can all help contribute towards these costs. Whether patients choose our inpatient care or the hospice at home service, our aim is to reach more people in the community at their time of need."
Keith Comley, WPD employee presented the kit bags to Hospice at Home nurse Sue Sharlott. His wife, Mandy, received care from Rowcroft Hospice.

Mr Comley said: "I am delighted that my employer, decided to support the hospice in this way. My wife Mandy was cared for by Rowcroft last year and the care she received was superb. It was a very difficult time for us and we found the staff professional and courteous."
