A charity luncheon at Charleston Manor for St Wilfrids Hospice and the construction of its new, larger hospice with a 20 bed inpatient unit, was attended by 200 guests. The event, which was organised by Rosemary and Keith Ross and their team of volunteers, plus 38 pupils from Eastbourne College, raised over 30,000.
St Wilfrids covers Eastbourne and surrounding area from Seaford, across to Pevensey and everywhere up to Uckfield and supports the whole person not just the physical symptoms associated with a life-limiting illness.
All treatment is free regardless of patients circumstances and specialist care is provided to patients at home and in nursing homes, via the Hospice at Home service, or in the Hospices in-patient unit. Other services include day therapy with a wide range of support, plus counselling and physiotherapy. Education facilities specialising in palliative care training for medical practitioners and care workers are also available, plus a bereavement service for families.
