Kindness has meant so much

I am writing to thank the residents of Hastings and Rother for their help and support following the devastating events at St Michael’s Hospice last weekend.

The fact that we have been able to supply out patients with much needed clothing, toiletries and items of comfort has made such a difference and has been a great solace to our staff to know that we were able to meet our patients’ needs at such a difficult time.

I cannot tell you how much your kindness and thoughtfulness has meant to all of our staff who have been so affected.

The speed at which our local community has rallied round in their support has been amazing and we are extremely grateful.

Celia Pyke-Lees,

Chief Executive, St Michael’s Hospice
