Teesside Hospice, who provide care to over 3,000 people with life-limiting conditions and their families from across Tees Valley each year were delighted to be awarded a grant from us for £3,096.
Thanks to our support, the hospice has purchased a ‘Lymph Flow Machine’, which will provide pain relief and management of the symptoms of patients with Lymphoedema, a chronic, life-limiting condition that causes swelling in the body's tissues.
Patricia Boynton, Fundraiser at the hospice said, “On behalf of Teesside Hospice, I’d like to thank the Morrisons Foundation for their generous donation of £3,093. It has enabled us to purchase a new Lymph Flow Machine with trousers, making a difference to people’s lives and their wellbeing. It has already been put to good use with our patients, bringing with it management of symptoms and more comfort for those suffering from Lymphoedema.”
“The coronavirus pandemic has meant that the hospice has had to adapt its services and its staff are on the front line supporting James Cook Hospital. The hospice has been taking patients from the hospital to ease the pressure on their bed capacity and their day hospice services have been delivered remotely by the charity’s expert community nurses and bereavement counsellors.”
