Help Lifespan support patients and their families

On Tuesday I had the pleasure of opening the new Hexham offices of Lifespan. Lifespan is a North-East based charity which supports people suffering from serious, life-limiting illnesses and their friends and family. The charity works with GPs, consultants, hospital teams, Macmillan and nursing teams to offer complementary therapies, counselling, nutritional advice, bereavement support and more. All of their services are free and Lifespan visits patients at home, in hospitals and in hospices. It was great to meet Manager Sheila and her team of staff and volunteers, who all do such incredible work.

Since Lifespan provides care and support to patients free of charge, they are dependant on donations and fundraising. If you would like to find out more about Lifespan or to support them by making a donation, visit here-
