Club Charity of the Year
This year North Herts Road Runners are pleased to support Garden House Hospice Care.
The Hospice is a Letchworth based charity that provides palliative care and support for adults with life limiting illnesses. Its roots are firmly in the community it serves. In addition to the 12 bed in patient unit, the Hospice provides 24/7 Hospice at Home care and a full day services unit dedicated to improving the quality of life of patients and their families. These services range from complimentary therapy, through to a small gymnasium.
Gym work is central to improving the mental and physical well-being of patients. Its philosophy is all about improving the quality of lives that patients have left. Patients leave day services, after therapy sessions, not only physically stronger but also mentally more capable of dealing with their health issues. It is a truly uplifting place.
The Hospice is blessed with fantastic staff members but relies on the generosity of the public to donate gym equipment. They could do so much more with better equipment. NHRR hope to fund some new gym equipment for the hospice
