Marie Curie Bradford
We're delighted to be supporting Marie Curie with a £487,000 donation towards the building of a new, state-of-the-art Marie Curie Outpatient Unit that will help to improve the lives of terminally ill patients and their families in Bradford.
The development will provide a larger space, new facilities and a brighter, more welcoming environment.
The improvements will also enable the hospice to double the number of people it can support and enhance the range of services provided. The new facilities will include an extended lounge and conservatory area, a rehabilitation kitchen, a bigger gym, and remodelled consultation rooms for medical treatments.
Jo Whincup, Hospice Manager, said: "We are very excited about the redevelopment and incredibly thankful to the organisations such as the Morrisons Foundation that have donated so far. Their generosity will allow us to improve the lives of many more people in Bradford. Most imagine that hospices are gloomy places that people go to die. While some of our inpatients will be cared for in their final days, the hospice really is a place of peace, comfort and respite."
