Members of the Royal Canadian Legion’s District F Hospital Fund presented Hospice Prince Edward with a donation of $11,419 to replace mattresses for the residence at Piction.

Buck Buchanan, of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 160 in Wellington, brought the request to the attention of the District F Hospital Fund, and Chair Don Ramsey expedited the donation.

Hospice Prince Edward receives funding from the Ministry of Health’s Home and Community Care Support Services for the direct care it provides to its residents, but fundraising and donations are needed to provide the furnishings, beds, and utilities at the hospice.

“We’re grateful”, said Sandra Barnes, Hospice Princ Edward Executive Director. “We want our clients to be comfortable while staying with us. We have a beautiful three-bedroom home on Downes Ave., Picton, providing end-of-life care to those residing in Prince Edward County, including veterans of our three Legions.”

She notes veterans from Wellington, Consecon and Picton’s Legions regularly use the supports and programs offered by Hospice Prince Edward both in the community and in the
residence.

“In return, these Legions have assisted with our fundraising events and made generous member donations,” added Barnes.

Hospice Prince Edward provides care, grief and bereavement support for people living with or affected by a life limiting illness. All programs and services are offered at no charge to the client or their families.
