Marie Curie has received over £9,500 in funding from Moy Park. Offering specialised care for those living with a terminal illness and support for families, Marie Curie is the largest provider of end-of-life care in Northern Ireland. With the help of funding from Moy Park, the charity has added to its facilities at its Belfast hospice, improving outdoor space available to patients and families.
The group was awarded the funding through Moy Park’s Community Support Fund which was established in 2020 to support organisations local to its operations across Europe.
Commenting on the support received from Moy Park, Jo Browne, Head of Operations at Marie Curie’s Belfast hospice said:
“For our patients, being able to get outside of their rooms and be protected from the elements is so important for their health and wellbeing as well as to enjoy time with family and friends. The donation from Moy Park meant that we could replace the existing awnings which is a real contribution to improving their stay at our hospice.”
Marie Curie offers a wide range of support from in-patient care to specialised day care services.
Ellie Kirke, HR Graduate at Moy Park added: “We are proud to support this fantastic charity through additional funding and help contribute to the tremendous work that they do for those living with a terminal illness in Northern Ireland. We are delighted that with this support, the team has been able to upgrade these sheltered spaces for patients to enjoy fresh air and family gatherings outdoors.”
