Local Chesterfield man remembers his wife by donating £10,000 to help transform the old wing at Ashgate Hospicecare into nine beautiful bedrooms

Mr Phipps, whose wife, April, was cared for by the hospice over 18 years ago wanted to give something back and help provide patients and their families with the privacy, family time, space they deserve. He said: “The hospice is an amazing place and it is a pleasure to donate the money to such a worthwhile cause.

“My incomings are more than my outgoings, so I wanted to donate the money I have accumulated to and support such an incredible appeal and place like Ashgate Hospicecare”

The transformation, which aims to create turn the hospice’s current three bedded bays into nine modern bedrooms, began work in April this year and thanks to the support and generosity of our community and people like Mr Phipps, Ashgate Hospicecare are closer to reaching their goal.

Alison Ward-Foster, Capital Appeals and Partnerships Manager at Ashgate Hospicecare, said: “The new bedrooms will be a safe-haven for so many patients and their families. They will provide our patients and their loved ones with a spacious, private and homely environment when they need it the most. On behalf of everyone at Ashgate Hospicecare, thank you to everyone who has supported the appeal so far!”
