Children’s hospice receives boost thanks to Plumb and Parts Center
Rebecca House provides respite, palliative and end-of-life care for young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions, from birth to 18-years-old.
The donation was set up by Steve Reed, Branch Manager of Plumb and Parts Center, Isle of Man.
“I’m delighted to help organise a donation to such a worthy cause,” Steve said.
“Rebecca House is the only child’s hospice on the island, and it’s important for the people here. As an island we’re a tight-knit community, so donations like this are a real boost.
“Plumb and Parts Center has its own national charities of choice that it supports, so it means a lot when it donates money to local causes like this - it’s a great gesture.”
Mary Doyle, Rebecca House, was delighted to receive the donation. She added:
“Our children’s hospice currently looks after 29 children on the Island so every penny is very precious to us and helps us continue to look after these families.
“I would like to thank Plumb and Parts Center for its donation.”
