Service improvements here at Bassetlaw Hospice 

We have been looking at ways to enhance the services we provide here at Bassetlaw Hospice. 

One of our new ideas has been made possible with the help and Support from Laura at ASDA in Worksop 

Bonney, our Charity Operations Manager went to meet Laura at ASDA where she explained the project that we are starting. ASDA have kindly donated toiletries to make up 15 new welcome packs for our patients here at Bassetlaw Hospice. These packs are so important, sometimes patients arrive with very little and these welcome packs will help with the essentials that a patient may need and the information included will help patients and their families to really understand what is on offer and what we can do for a patient here at Bassetlaw Hospice. 

Watch this space for more information on the welcome packs and other new service improvements 

And once again, thank you ASDA! 

Thank you to Shaun and his wife

Shaun is a patient here at the hospice and with his permission we wanted to say a huge thank you for their generous donation of £100 towards our hospice gardens.

This will be used for additional flowers and plants that will be planted by our gardener Dale, who I know has enjoyed the conversations about the types of plants to get.

This came after the glorious sunshine and conversations about sunflowers.

Thank you so much for your support.

One of those passionate individuals is Sam who is one of our wonderful Clinical Nurse Specialists here at the hospice.
Not only is this a massive physical challenge it’s a mental challenge too and we wish everyone all the very best. We will be sharing the runners stories throughout the challenge.

Samantha Sanders

Hi, my name is Sam, I work at Bassetlaw Hospice. Leading up to the event I have been completing my usual running training which usually consists of 2 training sessions, a long run and a recovery run each week. The average distance I cover in a typical week is around 35 miles so this is a massive leap for me, I do get fatigued and achy joints after a longer run usually, so ensuring I eat properly and get plenty of sleep will be key. I have pulled my back on Sunday and I’m struggling to walk at the minute without pain, so the next few days will be spent stretching and trying to improve this little issue, a trip to the physio may be in order.

Anyway, I see this all as part of the challenge, and look forward to seeing how I cope, mentally and physically.

Ali Mccurrach

Hi, my name is Ali and although I've always enjoyed exercise I was somewhat out of shape when I drunkenly agreed to take up the 10 for 10 challenge (Samantha sanders talked me into it on Feb 14th)
This left me less than 5 weeks to go from an unfit bloke into someone who can run 100 miles in 10 days. I started training straight away and ran 3 miles every day that week.
With 4 days left before the start I'm up to 6 miles a day. I've had blisters and sore muscles but it's all for a wonderful cause. I'll just have to jump into the challenge head first and have faith in myself. Good luck to all my fellow runners (I know I'm going to need a little)
