Rhino family health checks at Knowsley Safari Park
26 October 2012
Following on from last year’s success LJMU's Human Resources and Health and Safety teams recently participated in another volunteering day at St Joseph's Hospice (Jospice) in Thornton.
Jospice is one of the oldest hospices in the country, providing care and support to terminally ill people and their families when patients can no longer be cared for at home. The hospice is funded predominantly through fundraising activities and consequently there are often no funds left to improve the patient recreational areas.
The teams worked tirelessly to regenerate an outdoor area to be used by patients, working on a wishing well that aims to to create a scene of serenity for time out.
All of this was possible due to the kind donations from various organisations including DWF, Yeoman Backhouse,Wilkinson, ASDA, Costco, Taskers, and Buckels Nursery.
