Generous members of Nailsea Lions have donated £1,000 to the St Peter’s Hospice Room To Care Appeal.

The club raised money from an Easter egg raffle in which 25 giant eggs were raffled at locations in Nailsea, Backwell and Long Ashton.

The previous inpatient unit at the hospice was opened 20 years ago and needs to be redeveloped to meet modern clinical needs, to respond to changes in care practices and to make stays more comfortable for patients and their loved ones.

All the rooms in the new unit will be en-suite with garden access and there will also be a safe outside area for dementia patients.

The new unit will ensure St Peter’s Hospice is able to provide its patients with the best care and comfort.

The Room To Care Appeal, worth £1.53million, was launched in October last year.

Nailsea Lions is looking for new members to help with community work. To find out more, call 01275 855046.
