Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Merseyside, Mr Mark Blundell, recently visited Willowbrook Hospice to learn about the services the hospice offers to people with life limiting illnesses across St Helens and Knowsley.
The Lord Lieutenant was given a tour of the facilities by Alan Chick, Willowbrook’s chairman of the Board of Trustees and Neil Wright, Chief Executive of the Prescot based hospice. He also met with staff, volunteers and patients to hear first-hand about the work of the hospice and the difference it makes to people’s lives.
Earlier in the day, the Lord Lieutenant also visited Willowbrook’s Living Well building on Borough Road, St Helens where he chatted to staff from the hospice’s fundraising department, finance and advance care planning team as well as dropping into the onsite café and shop.
Following the visit, Alan Chick said: “We very much welcomed the opportunity to show the Lord-Lieutenant around both the hospice and The Living Well. Even though there’s always room for development, we’re really proud of our facilities and the services we provide to local people and their families.”
