Speen Supporting Hospices group
A nice letter of thanks has been received from the Rennie Grove Hospice :-
“Thank you for your donation of £1,500.00 which you kindly passed to my colleagues at the Rennie Grove Berkhamsted shop opening. Our sincere thanks to the entire Speen Helping Hospices group for their time, effort and support.
Your continued support is so very important to us. To give you an idea of what this significant amount of money could fund – £1,500 would be enough to purchase a year’s supply of blood glucose test strips for our nursing teams, helping them to detect and respond to changes in patients’ symptoms.
Hospice care is, in essence, just local people caring for local people. Our nurses have the skills and knowledge needed to deliver the ‘medical’ things our patients need – but it’s the support of our community that makes all of this possible. Without our community, we can achieve nothing.
With thanks again for your continued support.”
Best wishes Louise Hewitt
