Bonney Baggaley, charity operations manager at the Retford hospice, said staff were ‘delighted’ to receive the much-needed items from the Memorial Avenue Asda branch.

"These toiletries are being used to make up welcome packs for our patients,” said Bonney.

"This is so important because sometimes patients can arrive and not have the items they need.

Bassetlaw Hospice charity operations manager Bonney receives a donation of toiletries from Asda staff member Laura.

“Now with this being part of the welcome pack, it is one less thing for our patients and their families to worry about.

”This is a new project for us here at the hospice and after a lovely conversation with Laura from Asda, we now have all we needed to make this new project possible to start.”

Bassetlaw Hospice provides palliative care for patients who have been diagnosed with cancer or a progressive long term condition in the district.
