HOW HAVE tHE FRIENDS SPENT RECENT DONATIONS & FUNDRAISING GIFTS?

Our spring members’ letter to Friends has these news items…

  • The Early Supported Discharge Team on Beech Ward, who help neurological patients towards recovery, asked for funds to pay for equipment for Mirror Box Therapy. This is now being used by patients to improve upper limb recovery after stroke. The therapy team who work on different methods to improve upper limb recovery told us: “By looking in the mirror, the patient observes the reflected image of the unaffected limb  – this strong visual clue can be used to improve performance of the affected limb and electrical stimulation helps to activate the damaged portions of the brain.’ With the help of the Friends’ supporters, £651 was provided to purchase the kit.
  • In addition, over £1,300 has been provided by the Friends for other items of therapeutic programs, which can be used on iPads while patients are in hospital and also when they return home. These aid both physical speech and mental skills for patients on the road to recovery.
  • Beech Ward’s very successful Garden Group received £400 for the new season’s tools and plants.

HOW IS ALL THIS HELP FOR THE HOSPITAL
MADE POSSIBLE?

Through the kindness and financial support of local people and clubs, groups and organisations who raise the funds, which the NHS cannot supply through…

  • gifts and donations
  • legacies
  • large events
  • small group and individual money-raisers
