Welcome boost to charity funds

Have your say

A CHARITY that provides support and care for terminally ill people in their homes has been boosted by a donation from Sheffield firm Westfield Health.

Helen’s Trust, based in North Derbyshire, has received £10,000, which it will spend on equipment to help people in their homes, carers’ respite, and transport to and from hospital appointments.

Lucy Nickson, Chief Executive of Helen’s Trust, said: “We are thrilled to have this support - the impact of this donation is enormous for us.

“Helen’s Trust currently helps around 200 people a year and it costs £200,000 a year to run, so £10,000 really is a massive amount for the charity.

“It will mean we can plan ahead more securely for the next 12 months.”
