Public donations have funded around £50,000 of refurbishments to the hospice, including a welcoming scenic ceiling montage for patients arriving on an ambulance trolley.
The bright back-lit sky tiles, showing a sunny outdoor scene, have been added to a corridor linking adjoining areas of the hospice and the walls covered with wallpaper featuring the St John’s logo.
The day hospice has also undergone a major facelift as part of the programme of improvements, which has been been paid for by charitable donations from well-wishers.
Hospice fundraiser Lindsey Richards said: “It’s wonderful and all a result of the generous support we receive from our fundraisers, who freely give up their own time to benefit the people we care for. We can never thank them enough.”
