St Peter's Hospice opens new wing
St Peter's Hospice announced its Room to Care Appeal has reached its £1.53m target, and the brand new 21st century state-of-the-art Inpatient Unit at Westbury-on-Trym will admit its first patients on Monday 26 November.
Actress Caroline Quentin made the announcement at the new Inpatient Unit in her role as Appeal Patron.
Caroline said: “When we first started on this journey, it seemed like a really big ask and we knew we were doing something really important for Bristol. We asked the people of Bristol to step up and they have done that in the most extraordinary way.
“It’s very hard to describe what an exceptional piece of work this is.”
The rebuild of the Inpatient Unit has taken just over a year and would have been impossible without the support of the people of Bristol and surrounding areas.
In a special message for Henleaze and Westbury Voice readers Chief Executive, Simon Caraffi said:
“Thank you to each and every one of you who has raised funds to build our new Inpatient Unit for Bristol. We are so grateful for the generosity of the individuals, groups and companies who have chosen to support us in the last year. Whatever sum you raised or donated, every penny has made a difference to the quality of patient care we can now provide to the people of Bristol and surrounding areas for many years to come!”
