Sam's fundraising drive in memory of dad, Paul

Sam’s fundraising drive in memory of dad, Paul

The daughter of a Ledbury man who died at St Michael’s has launched a bid to raise funds for a syringe driver.

Sam Jones hopes to raise £1,000 for her Hospice in memory of dad Paul who passed away in September this year during his second stay with us.

Her online fundraising page collected more than £600 in its first couple of days.

‘The care and empathy he received during both stays was amazing and dad absolutely loved it there,’ said Sam.

A syringe driver is a small device which delivers medication at a constant rate through a small plastic tube.

Nichola Proctor, Head of Patient Services at St Michael’s, said, ‘We are enormously grateful to Sam and everyone who has donated so far.

‘Syringe drivers play a vital role in enabling us to help people live well at the end of life. Being a sensitive and delicate piece of equipment, they also need replacing from time to time. This kind-hearted gesture is greatly appreciated by all staff and patients at St Michael’s Hospice.’
