Willowbrook Hospice’s Living Well centre recently played host to The High Sheriff of Merseyside Mr Stephen Burrows DL and his wife Gill as they were given tour of the facilities as well as an update on the latest developments and the plans for the future.
They were welcomed by the chairman of the hospice’s Board of Trustees Alan Chick and Lady Kirsty Pilkington and during the visit spoke to both staff and volunteers based at The Living Well.
The High Sheriff said: “Today has been a wonderful opportunity to see how the services provided at the Living Well impact on the care and support Willowbrook offers to local people with life limiting illnesses across St Helens and Knowsley.”
“As well as being the base for hospice teams such as finance, fundraising and advance care planning, The Living Well is obviously an invaluable asset to the wider community, providing a place for people to meet, enjoy a cup of tea and a cake, browse in the onsite charity shop or to join in the wellbeing classes such as yoga and pilates.”
“Everyone we’ve spoken to today has been so enthusiastic and passionate about the hospice and should to be applauded for the outstanding contribution they make to the lives of local people.”
