Hospice Needs Votes For £6,000 Boost

Monday October 3 2011

BARNSLEY Hospice is in the running to win a £6,000 cash prize for the work it does in the community - but it needs votes to win.

The Hospice - which offers palliative care free of charge - only has half its running costs funded, the other half has to come from fund-raising.

It said: "The award would help provide essential specialist one to one palliative care to patients and also support for family members and relatives which includes counselling and bereavement support. On average we admit 200 patients to our inpatient unit and it costs just under £27,000 to just keep our inpatient unit open per week so this award would be greatly acknowledged as a contribution to our ongoing hospice initiative."
