North Devon Hospice has been selected by local employees at Mondelēz International’s Ernest Jackson site to receive a donation of £5,000.
Providing specialist care and support to those living with a life-limiting illness, the charity will be granted the substantial figure from The Cadbury Foundation, as part of its ‘Your Charity Your Choice’ scheme.
North Devon Hospice supports the whole family, when someone is affected by an incurable illness. The majority of support is provided in patients’ homes, while counselling and bereavement support is given to everyone involved.
The charity also provides a range of specialist care and support from its two sites in North Devon - Deer Park in Barnstaple and The Long House in Holsworthy. Deer Park offers a Bedded Unit where patients suffering from the most severe symptoms can be cared for around the clock.
The £5,000 grant will purchase a much-needed specialist reclining chair for the hospice’s Bedded Unit. It has been designed to offer maximum comfort to those with severe symptoms and will allow them the feeling of normality, offering the opportunity to spend time out of their bed every day.
