Queenscourt Hospice in Southport

The Rotary Club of Ormskirk Clocktower recently awarded Queenscourt Hospice a grant of £1,560 which will be used to create Family Care Packs to support children, young people and their families, who have either been bereaved, or are about to be bereaved.

The grant will help Queenscourt by supporting the purchase of practical resources for the packs, such as books, arts materials, memory boxes and jars, and worry dolls.

Director of Nursing Helen Birch said: “Our Children and Family Support Services will use the packs to provide bereavement support, creating the right conditions for the children to think and talk about their feelings, and share their worries.

“The Rotary Club of Ormskirk Clocktower has supported Queenscourt many times and we are very grateful for this grant.”

The money was raised by members of the Rotary Club of Ormskirk Clocktower through a variety of lockdown activities, including an online concert, recipe book and treasure hunt by car.

James Parsons, the Club’s President for 2020/21, said: “All the members of our club were delighted to donate to Queenscourt Hospice – they do a fantastic job in our community!

“We have worked hard fundraising over the last few months during lockdown so we can finance this excellent project to support bereaved children. Every moment of our time and every effort we made was totally worth it.”
