Christmas comes early thanks to Morrisons
Day Hospice patients and St Barnabas House staff and volunteers admire the present from Morrisons
Christmas came early to St Barnabas House today (7 December) when staff from Morrisons supermarket in Worthing dropped in with some very special presents.
Store Manager, Stuart Marshal, visited the hospice with Michelle Spearman,
Charlotte Chipper, Sue Litherfair and Barbara Clark, who all work in the Worthing store. They brought with them lots of mince pies, which they shared with the patients during morning coffee. They then presented patients and staff with two beautifully wrapped, and very large, presents.
Said Community Fundraising Manager, Sloane Vaughan, 'We were all too excited to wait until Christmas to open the presents, so we asked our Day Hospice visitors to help us un-wrap them straight away - and what a fantastic surprise we got!'
The gifts contained a brand new 32 inch LCD TV and stand for the new St Barnabas House, which is nearing completion in Titnore Lane, Worthing.
'On behalf of patients and staff, I would like to say a big thank you to Morrisons for their generosity, not just for this donation, but for the continued support they give to the hospice,' added Sloane.
Store Manager, Stuart Marshal, said, 'It was a really enjoyable experience to spend some time with the day hospice visitors and to share some Christmas joy with them.'
