The staff at Bentley House Care and Nursing home paid a visit to the Lister Hospital this week, delivering Christmas gifts, decorations and a few treats for the patients and staff on the elderly care ward.
The staff were so grateful and overwhelmed; in their words, it was “nice to know that someone still cares about our patients”. Quite a few of their patients won’t have visitors over the festive period, so even our little gifts will make a big difference to them on Christmas Day.
Residents of Bentley House gave generously in their donations to the raffle, which meant they could also donate £100 to the ward for new equipment. They gave 30 Christmas themed mugs, gift-wrapped with chocolates, an artificial pre-lit tree, tinsel and decorations.
Wishing all the staff and patients at the Lister Hospital a Merry Christmas from all at Bentley House.
