A donation of more than £40,000 to hospices across Cumbria has provoked an emotional response from nurses working tirelessly to support patients and their families at the end of life.
The Cumberland Building Society has donated an incredible £44,013 which will be shared between Eden Valley Hospice, Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland and Hospice at Home West Cumbria.
The generous donation, which is being marked during National Hospice Care Week - from October 9th to October 15th - has been made possible thanks to The Cumberland’s Affinity Account savers who have chosen to save and support the local causes closest to their hearts.
Hospice Care Week provides an opportunity to celebrate hospice care nationwide. This year the spotlight is on the incredible hospice workforce.
