St Luke’s Hospice has received a £5,000 grant from the Caron Keating Foundation for the development of its Wellbeing Services.
The hospice’s Wellbeing team offers treatments to help people relax, enjoy life and feel better, giving them chance to feel more themselves at a time when every day is more precious than ever.
“This grant will pay a substantial proportion of the cost of provided Wellbeing Services to our cancer patients this year,” said the hospice’s Trusts Fundraising Manager Sue Jackson.
“In 2012, our therapists offered over 2,400 complementary treatments to palliative care cancer patients.”
Former Blue Peter and This Morning star Caron Keating lost her battle against cancer in 2004. The Caron Keating Foundation was subsequently established by her mother Gloria Hunniford and Caron’s brothers, Paul and Michael.
