Care for cancer sufferers has been given a helping hand by the Freemasons’ charity the MCF.
A donation of just over £1,900 has been handed to Lincoln’s St Barnabas Hospice in-patient unit as a contribution to the £12m-a-year costs of the organisation – which costs £22 a minute to run.
The money will particularly help the ‘hospice at home’ service to provide care for cancer sufferers in their own home.
Ward Manager Sue Carter said: “The teams who go out as part of our Hospice at Home scheme need constant supplies of all kinds of consumables, without which they wouldn’t be able to provide a service to people in their own homes.
“Looking after the patients in our care is about far more than medical treatment; it’s about wellbeing too, of patients and their families. They come to us at a very difficult time in their lives, and we must care for them all.”
