Barnstaple firm Barrow Clark donates special luxury chair to North Devon Hospice.

BARROW Clark Furnishers of Barnstaple together with Joynson Holland Furniture, have brought some early Christmas cheer with the gift of a luxury rise and recline electric chair to North Devon Hospice.

The chair will be used in the Day Hospice lounge, to allow patients to relax in comfort and also get up with ease.

“This is a really generous gift, and certainly adds to the comfortable atmosphere that we try to create at Day Hospice,” said Day Hospice nurse, Maggie Berry.

“Patients come and spend the day with us and they really enjoy the welcoming environment we provide. They go home at the end of the day often feeling a whole lot better than when they arrived. We are very grateful for this gift and I know it will get a great deal of use.”

The chair, produced by Joynson Holland, has been donated as part of a nationwide scheme, where 100 chairs will be distributed to charities across the country. They are available to buy from Barrow Clark.

Robert Barrow of Barrow Clark Complete Furnishers added: “We are delighted to be donating a chair to such a wonderful, caring and essential cause.

“North Devon Hospice is a fantastic charity which has blessed so many people. Lives have been touched because of the dedication, love and care of the hospice team and this is just a small contribution which we hope will help patients and their families.”
