Jennie Parker, who was recently a patient on the Treatment and Investigation Unit has made a donation to say thank you for the care she received following a recent period of treatment.
Jennie attended TIU in December for a bone infusion to treat her Osteoporosis and wanted to thank the staff for the care she received during her time on the ward.
To say thank you Jennie, who regularly makes her own jams, decided to sell them to donate to the hospital. Jennie was able to raise a total of £50 with the fruits of her labour.
Jennie is a member of ‘The Clarkson Singers’, who are a Wisbech ammeter choir. The choir supported Jennie by purchasing a large amount of her jams and marmalades.
Jennie said: “Initially, like a lot of people I was very anxious to go into hospital for some treatment but the staff were all wonderful. I just wanted to say thank you to all the lovely staff through a small donation. I’d also like to thank The Clarkson Singers, who as well as having big voices have big hearts. I couldn’t keep up with the demand, I grow my own blackberries and gooseberries so I had plenty in hand, I’d like to thank Kirsty and her mum for their help.”
Mohan Phulmattie, a Matron at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, said: “We value every donation that comes into our organisation because it all helps. I used to work on TIU so I am very happy to hear about Jennie’s experience.”
