Right Arrow Family present £2,000 donation in mumís memory
10 July 2017 at 14:37

Friends and family raised £2,000 for Southport hospital in memory of Julie Tivey who was a patient on Ward 11b.

The 58-year-old former housing officer from Aughton, near Ormskirk, was admitted to hospital in March and died after a short illness.

Her husband Colin, a programme director for an engineering firm, said: “The care Julie had from the hospital was outstanding. We wanted to raise a donation in her memory to provide support for patients being treated on 11b in the future.”

The donation was raised using a Just Giving page on the internet.

Sheena Walker, Matron for 11b, and ward manager Mark Soffe received the donation on behalf of the Trust from Mr Tivey and Julie’s children, Andrew and Hayley, who all worked hard to raise the money.

Sheena said: “We are planning a refurbishment of the ward and will put Julie’s donation to something extra for patients when it’s completed.”

There is more information about how to make donations to the Trust’s charitable fund on the Trust website.
