Hospice needs more money for mattresses


Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice in Moggerhanger, needs to raise £13,000 to help complete the purchase of new air mattresses and privacy curtains.

The Hospice provides compassionate and person-centred care for people with life-limiting illness and their families every year across Bedfordshire.

Suzanne Tebbutt, Nursing Sister at the Hospice for Sue Ryder, St John’s, said: “The generosity of so many people will give patients greater privacy, improve the care we give and offer a better patient experience.

“We are relying on the local community to get behind their local hospice and support us in any way they can to raise these much needed funds.”

Providing incredible care and support to patients and their families is really important to the team at St John’s.

Specialist air mattresses are an urgent priority for patients with a range of conditions including cancer, heart failure, respiratory failure and motor neurone disease.
