Family donates gifts for Ward 10 at the West Suffolk Hospital
The loving care and attention given to a patient at the West Suffolk Hospital has led to her family donating gifts to the ward where she was treated.
Now F10 has a cordless phone, four DAB radios and a CD player courtesy of Brian Wallace and his son Glenn.
It was back in January that Christine Wallace was admitted to the respiratory ward of the hospital.
Glenn said that his 76-year-old mother was very, very ill but was treated with dignity and care by staff before she died on January 29.
He said: “She was very frail but the way that they not only treated her but us as well with all the hours we spent on the ward was absolutely amazing. So instead of people buying flowers at her funeral we asked for donations.”
And along with money raised at their local pub The Cock, in Stanton, close to where they all live, over £300 was raised for the My WiSH Charity, which supports the hospital, with the the money going to F10.
Glenn added: “Mum loved music and quite often when I sat with her I would put some music to her ear and she would appreciate the radio and CD player being donated to the ward.”
Sue Smith, fundraising manager, said “It was lovely to be able to show Glenn and Brian that their money has been spent just as they wished. Having spoken to staff across West Suffolk Hospital, we know that having music on the ward really does make for a nice, calm environment and what a lovely legacy for Christine and her family to have left to F10”.
