The Rose project - supporting patients approaching their final days in Watford General

The Rose project promotes dignity and compassion for patients approaching the end of their lives in Watford Hospital. Specially trained volunteers will provide an extra level of care in patients' last hours and days of their lives.

Charity Registration No. 1052210


Those of you who know me well will have heard me say never ever am I running a marathon ... well now with my partner in crime I am running the Liverpool Rock & Roll Marathon on Sunday 26th May.

I have been in denial but the time has come to do it..
I have decided to get sponsored as this project was launched last week and it’s very very close to my heart and I want to help achieve our dream.

I hope that when my final days approach I will be surrounded by love from my family and friends.

Many of our patients do not have loved ones to support them, and even close families can find it difficult to visit as much as they would like.

So I am raising funds to support the palliative care staff (my team) at Watford General who are developing the Rose project to ensure that every patient has all the support they need at this most precious time.

At the heart of the project will be a team of volunteers, specially trained to provide patients with companionship, a listening ear and a comforting hand to hold when they need it most. Families need help too and the comfort of knowing that someone can sit with their loved one if they can't be there.

Raise, the hospital's charity, is looking for £50,000 to run the Rose project for two years. Will you join me in supporting this amazing cause too?

Thank you
