A SPECIAL centre providing support and end-of-life care for people in Uttoxeter is set to receive a new year boost from Leek United.
Staff from the Society’s town branch have raised £300 for the Holly Road
Supportive Care Centre, after holding a competition for a festive hamper.
The centre is a partnership project between Katharine House Hospice and St Giles Hospice, and aims to help local people live well in later life, as well as supporting improved end-of-life care.
A range of day therapies – including lymphedema management, bereavement support and complementary therapies – are also delivered at the Care Centre by Katharine House and St Giles Hospices.
Jayne Fallows, Manager at Leek United’s Uttoxeter Branch, said: “Our customers were as generous as always in helping us to raise much-needed funds for this wonderful facility, and our thanks go out to them.”
Michelle Edwards, Supportive Care Co-ordinator for the Centre said: ”We are extremely grateful to Leek United for this generous donation.
“Since we opened our doors last year, we have been so pleased that the local community are so supportive of our service; the word is starting to spread and people are dropping in to find out more. This donation will help to ensure we are able to continue our work caring for the people of Uttoxeter”.
Winner of the hamper was Mrs Dawn Haywood, of Uttoxeter.Back to news
