Enhancing vital care facilities

In Northamptonshire, the Corby depot continued its support for the local Lakelands Hospice...

Lakelands Hospice, Corby

An independent charity providing specialist palliative care for people with cancer, heart failure and other life-limiting illnesses. 

The team donated a kitchen (and its installation) to the hospice, where a bright and fresh environment is vital to patients' wellbeing. As Cathy Langtree, nurse manager at Lakelands, explains; "Making a welcoming environment at the hospice encourages patients to feel relaxed and able to discuss any issues they have. We really value the support of Howdens - every penny they help us save is a penny more we can spend on patient care."
