Our speaker on Wednesday 19 June 2019 was Rachel Wagstaff from our local Hospice, St Luke’s Hospice. St Luke’s Hospice operates from Woodgrange in Kenton Road, less than a mile from our Club’s meeting place, so we see them very much as a local charity.
St Luke’s Hospice looks after people in Harrow and Brent whose illnesses are no longer curable. They help and empower their clients to enjoy the best possible quality of life, knowing their family and carers are supported too. They aim to care for and support people in the place of their choice, whether it is in their own homes, supported by the Hospice at Home and Community Teams, in the Woodgrange Day Centre, or in their In-Patient Unit.
They work in partnership with, and provide education and support to GPs, community teams, nursing homes, and other healthcare professionals to ensure the highest levels of care for patients, whatever the setting.
President Mike took great pleasure in presenting a cheque for £500 as a token of the Club’s continuing support for the work of St Luke’s Hospice.
