ELLENOR HOSPICE RECEIVES £125,000 FROM THE WOLFSON FOUNDATION
ellenor hospice is celebrating after being awarded £125,000 funding from one of the UK’s largest charitable funders in recognition of the expert and personalised end-of-life care they provide to patients living with a life-limiting or terminal illness and their families in the local community.
This grant from the Wolfson Foundation will enable the charity to continue and develop their services for the people they care for, and will ensure that these services are there to support patients and families in different settings – in the hospice, at home, in care homes and in hospitals – now and in the future.
The Wolfson Foundation is an independent charity that supports organisations demonstrating excellence in health and medicine, the arts and humanities and education. Since launching in 1955, it has awarded over £900 million in grants, supporting more than 11,000 projects in local communities.
Vikki Harding, CEO of ellenor says: “We are delighted to receive this grant from the Wolfson Foundation. Their generous support will ensure that we can continue to provide outstanding hospice care to local families in Kent and Bexley throughout this time of national crisis and beyond. We would like to say a big thank you to the Wolfson Foundation for their kind support, which will make a real and tangible difference to the people we care for.”
Paul Ramsbottom, Chief Executive of the Wolfson Foundation said, “We are delighted to be supporting ellenor at this challenging time. The comfort and support they provide – whether in the hospice or in the community – make a huge difference to patients and families who require end of life care.”
