Alton Webteam: August 2016
As a result of the congregation's generosity at our annual church Gift Day, a cheque for £750-00 was given, as a portion of the total raised, to support the development of an End-of-life Suite at Alton Community Hospital.
Both the new Ward Manager, Andrew Marsh, and the Ward Nurse, Jackie Ransom, have written to the church, expressing not only their thanks, but their appreciation for the messages of encouragement and support they have received in their work there. Many in our church family have benefited.
The new suite will be named "The Glen", chosen by Kate Wilson in memory of her late husband, Jack.
Please do visit the Quiet Room, already in place at our local hospital, and if you would like a visit to see more, contact Andrew Marsh (contact details on church foyer noticeboard).
If you know of any local fundraising organisations who would like to support the realisation of this worthwhile provision in our town, please do give them the Ward Manager's details, or mine.
