Staff at the Swaffham and Litcham Home Hospice took delivery of three brand new, lightweight wheelchairs last Friday, thanks to a donation from the Royal Warrant Holders Association (RWHA).
The chairs were purchased with a £600 grant from the RWHA’s charity fund, following a successful application by the Sandringham branch’s honorary secretary Ray Luck and former president Jane Darby.
Hospice co-ordinator Debbie Hanwell said: “They will make such a difference for use by our patients whilst on loan, and also to our team of dedicated volunteer drivers who will make regular use of them whilst taking our patients to their hospital appointments.
“Their light weight will make them so much easier and user friendly to lift in and out of the cars. We give our sincere thanks the Royal Warrant Holders Association for their kind generosity.”
