The Cradle Project and VOLPES Newmarket Mall donates
A charity group, The Cradle Project, in conjunction with VOLPES in Newmarket Mall, recently donated 32 new duvet covers, pillow slips, pillows and sheets to Stepping Stone Hospice. Karin Serfontein, who initiated this donation, says she did this because of the excellent care that was given to the father of a friend of hers whilst he was in the In-Patient Unit. “The care he received, was just amazing and I really felt that I should be doing something to help the hospice.”
This donation came just in time, says Sister Sheryl Newman, head of clinical services. “Our In-Patient Unit has eight beds of which the linen gets changed a minimum of once a day. Therefore the “wear and tear” on our linen is quite astronomical and new linen is always a blessing,” she says. “So thank you to Karin and The Cradle Project for helping us in ensuring that our patients receive the quality care they so deserve,” Sheryl concludes.
