Unique Employment Services Ltd in Luton are pleased to support the local Keech Hospice. After seeing the incredible work they complete – it is an amazing cause.
The Keech Hospice is a charity based in Luton which gives palatable care to both Children and adults with terminal illness in the Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire area.
It is ran by over 1,000 people in various roles, who ALL give their time and effort on a voluntary basis. There is actually only 2 people who are paid employees.
Keech not only care for patients at their state of the art facility, but they also care for patients at their homes as well.
The facilities they have are amazing! They have a swimming pool that allows patients to feel weightless and enables patients to interact with their families in a different way, i.e – being able to cuddle and hug family members whilst being in the pool.
There is a sensory zone, which is incredible, this allows patients to interact in ways they would not normally get the opportunity to do. The landscaped and manicured gardens are incredible, and have been created by celebrity gardeners such as Alan Titchmarsh.
The centre is truly amazing, however it also comes with a big price tag to run. The centre is given on the government minimum in grants, which equates to 25% of running costs. The remanding 75% is made up in denotations and fund raising.
The Centre costs £15k to run, this is just for 1 week!
