Local personal trainer and fitness instructor Helen Monkman ran the Edinburgh Marathon on 26th May in memory of two special ladies and raised £1,300 for Hartlepool & District Hospice.
The first lady was her Mam, Veronica Lorimer who died in 2011 from a brain tumor and the second lady was Liz Horwood who was the Mam of one of her close friends. Both of the ladies died from cancer related illnesses and both had received care from hospices.
Heerema’s Charity Committee along with client GDF Suez has awarded a £1,000 to the Hospice for the purchase of a new mattress for the Inpatient Unit.
Currently all Inpatient beds have mattresses which have been purchased over a number of years and the time is approaching when these mattresses are ready to be replaced.
