A generous donation of more than £8,000 from Lions Clubs across the North Notts area has provided nurses from Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice with community nurse kit bags, to take on home visits.

Retford Lions, Edwinstowe and Dukeries Lions and Worksop and Mansfield Lions, chose to support Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice after hearing about the benefits of the bags. They contain a chilled compartment for medicine, respiratory equipment, a stethoscope, thermometer and iPads, preloaded with medical software.

John Battersby, of Retford Lions, said: “We were really impressed with the concept of the community nurse kit bags, especially as it will assist Community Nurses in often difficult situations.”
