Last Friday, I visited St. Kentigerns Hospice charity shop in Holywell.
I always enjoy being able to meet the volunteers in our charity shops. They give up their time for free to ensure that money is raised for good causes.
St. Kentigern Hospice first opened in 1995 and now provides care for up to 10 patients daily, five days a week. They provide care for patients to help them, their family and carers through a difficult period. Many of their patients will be discharged back to their own homes following admission for pain and symptom control, enabling an improved quality of life and community support.
St. Kentigern provides care and support for patients with a life limiting illness across north east Wales. Taking in Colwyn Bay in the west along the ocast to Northop in the east and inland encompassing Mold, Ruthin, Corwen, Denbigh and Llangernyw.
This is an excellent charity and one that I fully support. I hope that people will continue to visit the friendly staff at the Holywell shop and keep the Hospice providing its extraordinary care.
