So far, during 2018 we have part sponsored the NUH Volunteer Long Service Awards, and funded various items for Beeston Stroke Unit,and various items for Linden Lodge, Physiotherapy and Intensive Care Unit. During 2017, donations included four sets of snooze and sleep system for Linden Lodge, which have proved a very successful addition to their work.
Also in 2017, we bought furniture and equipment for Plastic Surgery Library, and for Patients’ Rooms in Trent Cardiac and Berman Ward, as well as very many smaller but significant items for staff and patients.
“On behalf of the whole team here at Linden Lodge, I would like to thank you all for the support you have given to us over this past year. It means so much to us and really helps us to try and provide the highest possible care to our patients. Thank you.”
