Where your fundraising money will go

You can make a difference to Willen Hospice

Did you know it costs £9 a minute to run the Hospice? That’s just to keep things ticking over. Sometimes there are items that can make a huge difference to patients, but funds for these little extras may be out of reach. That’s where we you can help. Every bake sale, quiz night or raffle you do, goes towards this total.

Here at Volkswagen Group, we have set ourselves a goal to raise £450 this quarter to buy a specific item for Willen Hospice. Read more about why it is so important to every patient.

Help us raise funds for a new Immedia SatinSheet System

  • It’s designed to make moving a patient in bed easier.
  • It minimises the risk of pressure, since the SatinSheet reduces the risk of friction and shear. It meets a wide range of needs for those who are independent and well as for an entirely dependant patient.
  • As the sheets stay in position on the bed, they enhance comfort for the patient and help the nursing staff to reposition, transfer or turn the person with ease.
  • It also reduces the number of nurses needed to manage the position or transfer the patient.
