Today Mark, Richard, Helen & Vinnie came into see the nurses and doctors on the Mercury Ward.
After spending some time in the ward with their father Barry the family wanted to give back to the team.
They handed over a cheque for an amazing £500.00 plus a new coffee machine, coffee pods & chocolates for the staff.
Mark said ' We really wanted to recognise the staff after receiving such amazing care, compassion & love not just towards dad but all the family members.
They pulled all the stops out for us and made one of the hardest times a little easier to cope with. They were all so accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. We really can't thank the team enough for all their hard work and compassion'
'It's care like this that needs to be rewarded. We asked the nurses what they would like and they listed off equipment that would benefit their patients and their families. We couldn't believe that given the choice the nurses still put others before them. That is why we decided to make a donation to the ward and bring them a new Coffee Machine & chocolates so they didn't have to leave the office for refreshments.
'We hope the donation will be used to help others, just like we were helped.'
Brighter Futures have banked the donation & the ward will be able to spend this on providing extraordinary care and support to patients and their families.
Thank you again to the Kelly's for supporting our amazing team. Support like this to Brighter Futures - Mercury Ward enable us to continue to improve this care, investing in new equipment, training, research and patient welfare.
