The Mayor of Knowsley Town Council Anthony Ely, visited Woodlands Hospice recently accompanied by his mother Doreen, and his daughter Libbie. During the visit time was given to chatting with a number of staff and volunteers. Unfortunately, patients were not well enough to receive visitors on this occasion but Councillor Ely is keen to return in a few weeks.
Rose Milnes, Chief Executive at the Hospice said: “We are very grateful to the Mayor and his family for taking time out of their busy schedule to come along to the Hospice and see first-hand the services provided to local people and their families."
During his visit Councillor Ely said: “I have chosen Woodlands Hospice in my mayoral year of office as a charity partner in order to highlight how crucial the services they offer are when it comes to end of life care and support for families dealing with terminal illness. I experienced this care first hand in relation to the professional care afforded to my father before his passing in 2013. I hope that the people of Merseyside and beyond will continue to support such a worthwhile and valuable community service for many years to come either financially, through donations or practically through volunteering”.
