Oxenhope hospice Manorlands benefits from Punchbowl Inn at Silsden
3:06pm Monday 25th February 2013 in News
A pioneering scheme enabling seriously ill people to communicate from home with medical experts at Manorlands hospice has received a cash injection.
Equipment connected to a patient’s TV and phone line allow the person to see and speak to professionals at the Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice. A donation towards the cost of the hi-tech system has been received from the Punchbowl Inn at Silsden.
The inn raised £3,685 with activities including a sponsored walk in Skipton and an event at the pub which featured a 5km fun run. The run was backed by Co-operative Funeral Care, incorporating Thomas Clarkson funeral directors.
The remaining cost of the scheme has been covered with an £8,000 grant from the Shears Foundation and a private donation of £500.
