Stairlift manufacturer goes above and beyond for palliative care charity
Building on its existing partnership, West Yorkshire stairlift manufacturer and installer Acorn Stairlifts is planning to raise £20,000 for Marie Curie to fund 1,000 hours of care for its specially trained nurses.
Currently, the Steeton stairlift specialist installs up to 60 free stairlifts annually to Marie Curie patients living with terminal illnesses, enabling these individuals, the freedom to be cared for at home.
Continuing the partnership, Acorn will now donate £10 to the charity for every stairlift installed before the 9th June.
Caren Larkman-Ayre, National Sales Manager at Acorn Stairlifts, said: “We’re very proud to be supporting Marie Curie, a charity that does amazing work caring for people during exceptionally difficult times.
“Since our partnership began in 2016, we have installed more than 150 stairlifts for people living with a terminal illness, enabling them to be cared for at home and helping them to make the most of the time they have with their loved ones.
“Every stairlift sold will help not only help the person who will benefit from its installation, but also the thousands of people across the UK who Marie Curie care for.”
It is hoped that the money raised throughout the scheme will raise enough money to provide invaluable care and support for hundreds of terminally-ill patients and their families throughout the nation.
Charlotte Scurrah, Corporate Development Manager at Marie Curie, added: “Acorn Stairlifts’ very generous initiative will go a long way to helping Marie Curie provide care for more people living with a terminal illness and their families.
“Acorn Stairlifts’ support throughout our partnership has been fantastic and we’re thrilled to see the positive impact it’s had on so many people by enabling people to be cared for in their own homes. It is so rewarding to see the relief stairlifts provide and we’re looking forward to changing more lives together.”
Marie Curie recently unveiled some statistics highlighting that over 200 patients in Northern Ireland died in hospital whilst waiting to be discharged in 2017/18 due to shortfalls in community care packages, including necessary equipment and adaptations, as well as a lack of care home placements.https://thiis.co.uk/stairlift-manufacturer-goes-above-and-beyond-for-palliative-care-charity/https://i2.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Acorn-stairlift.jpg?fit=1000%2C667&ssl=1https://i2.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Acorn-stairlift.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1NewsroomSupplier NewsThird SectorAcorn,Acorn Stairlift,Marie Curie,palliative,Stairlifts,West YorkshireBuilding on its existing partnership, West Yorkshire stairlift manufacturer and installer Acorn Stairlifts is planning to raise £20,000 for Marie Curie to fund 1,000 hours of care for its specially trained nurses.
