WISH LIST: 2015
Syringe drivers for the community patients costed at £1200 each. Having a syringe driver for individual patients ensures that they get good pain relief and medication when they need it and it helps them to remain at home where they feel more comfortable;
- Chairs furniture for patients in the Hospice and at home - £1000-3000 depending on their function. Some patients find it difficult to lie in a bed when they are very thin in particular so the special chairs are a fabulous boost;
- Air conditioning units for each patient room only 3 rooms currently with the service and 12 remain in need- £1500 per room. This gives the patients control over the environment of their space, they can be warm or cooler as everyone is individual in their needs.
- Ceiling Hoist - for one of the patient rooms - £3000. This is a fabulous addition to any room as patients can be lifted safely which supports the staff too and enables patients to be more independent.
- Self servicing Toilet - to purchase and have installed - £10,000. This would be fantastic for long term patients who have use of one at home and need admitting for reassessment . It means they can retain their independence while staying at the Hospice.

No matter what you can afford, every penny counts and is used to benefit the patients and their relatives.
We always have need of other items such as unused toiletries and cosmetics, jewellery and perfumes which we can sell at our fundraising events.
In addition we need wool for patients to use at arts and crafts sessions.
If you are a beautician perhaps you would like to donate a couple of hours of your time to help at one of our Pamper Evenings, ususally held in February each year.
