THE PRIMROSE Hospice has received a welcome £17,654 boost from the Morrisons Foundation.
The Bromsgrove-based charity provides free care to patients with life-threatening conditions and their families but costs £1.75million-a-year to run.
The cash from the foundation will go towards providing bereavement services, helping children to cope with the recent loss of a loved one.
Heather Coughlin, the Primrose Hospice’s head of family support, said the charity was so grateful for the donation.
“It means we can continue to provide vital care and support for children in north east Worcestershire who have lost a loved one.
“Our Family Support services are provided free of charge to anyone who has lost a loved one, regardless of whether their loved one had contact with Primrose before they died.”
Gareth Worton, Bromsgrove Morrisons’ community champion, said: “The charity is really well known in the area, both by customers and colleagues, so it’s great that the Morrisons Foundation has been able to help them”
“The support they will be able to give to children who need their care at such a difficult time is invaluable.
“Helping local charities is at the heart of what the Foundation is all about and I’m so happy that we can provide this grant.”
The foundation was set up in 2015 and since then £26million has been donated to hundreds of charities across the United Kingdom.
