After seeing a report on Hull Live regarding the staff in Ward 30 Castle Hill Hospital raising funds for camp beds so families can stay with their loved ones approaching their final hours, HER Breast Friends contacted the Ward to see if we could help.
On Friday 14th July, 2 beds complete with covers were purchased by the Charity and delivered to Ward 30 to help them in their quest to source 8 beds in total. The staff were overwhelmed by the delivery of their first 2 beds, which were used by relatives that same weekend!
This is very much in keeping with one of the Charity’s Objectives to ‘help create a positive environment for all affected by breast cancer’.
In previous years, the Charity has also purchased 2 lymphoedema assist machines, an Accuvein machine and contributed to Tomosynthesis technology for the hospital.
Well done everyone – further evidence of our fundraising put to good use!
