£2,000 thanks to ward that treated mum
A FAMILY has presented £2,000 to the hospital ward where an Aughton mum was treated.
Friends and family raised the money for Southport hospital in memory of Julie Tivey who was a patient on Ward 11b.
The former housing officer was admitted to hospital in March and died, aged 58, 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.”
The donation was raised from a Just Giving web page.
Sheena Walker, Matron for 11b, and ward manager Mark Soffe received the donation on behalf of the trust from Colin 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.”
