£2,000 thanks to ward that treated mum

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Front Page -

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.”
