A new care centre at a hospice has officially been named after the public were given the chance to make their suggestions.

The facility at St Luke’s Hospice, in Kenton Grange, has been named the Woodgrange Centre and will offer new therapy rooms.

The hospice has now launched a crowdfunder campaign to raise £6,000 in the next six weeks to help raise money for specialist equipment for newly built therapy rooms.

The Woodgrange Centre will be used to support patients, including those with cancer and other illnesses, who are at the start of their treatment for their illness.

It will house a new breathlessness clinic, a range of theory sessions and be the base for drop-in consultation sessions for people to use.
