Raising funds for a dedicated bereavement suite in the Emergency Department (ED) at QA Hospital.
The Medicines for Older Peoples Wards (MOPRS) are raising funds for activity trolleys- light, portable storage trolleys which can be wheeled to wherever they're needed.
MOPRS patients are often in hospital for longer stints of time, and the trolleys mean patients can choose from a number of fun and stimulating activities like puzzles, or a board game which can be played with visitors to pass the time and keep the mind active, even if they feel too weak to walk away from their bed.
The Trolleys cost £700 each, including activities and games. If you can support the purchase of a trolley or a new game for patients on MOPRS, please contact Kerry Budd on firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the MOPRS fundraising page by clicking MOPRS activity trolley fundraising page.
The Cancer Services Department at QA is appealing for all those pesky 5 pence pieces which clog up any purse or piggy bank.
The Department is hoping for enough 5p's to cover a mile if they were all laid side-by-side, totalling 90,000 5p's, or £4500. This is to help fund Health and Well-being Events for cancer sufferers at QA, to help them feel happier whilst under going treatment, and work towards a healthy lifestyle to reduce the risk of cancer returning.
Collections of 5ps can be handed into the Radiotherapy / Oncology Outpatient’s Reception, the Haematology & Oncology Day Unit Reception or to any of the areas that are displaying the 5p mile poster.
Thank you for your support!
Staff from the Maternity Department are currently fundraising to renovate the Nightingale bereavement suite. It is currently very clinical, so the staff would like to make it more of a 'home from home' experience with soft furnishings, pictures and comfortable furniture.
