Maghull Town Council Mayor, Labour's Cllr Sandra Williams, was taken on a tour of Woodlands Hospice last week to see for herself the fantastic work the charity does.
Cllr Williams was shown around the hospice on the Aintree Hospital site by Woodlands' chief executive Rose Milnes and Trust chairman Ken Hoskisson.
Woodlands Hospice Charitable Trust is a registered charity which was set up in 1991 in order to raise the funds necessary to build and run Woodlands Hospice. In 1996, the Hospice opened and since then has provided Day Therapy Services to the people of Sefton, Knowsley and North Liverpool.
The Mayor of Maghull said she was delighted to support the fantastic work of the local hospice.
Cllr Williams said: "I am always delighted to help Woodlands Hospice in any way that I can.
"The work the staff and volunteers do at Woodlands really is second to none.
"They give support and assistance to people when they most need it, a time when they are battling terminal illnesses. And they give support to their families.
"Services offered include the Community Therapy Outreach Service which enable patients and carers to access the complementary therapies, stress management, Occupational Therapy assessment and Physiotherapy at home and Support Services which include Carer Support and Bereavement Support."
Cllr Williams praised the work of everyone involved with Woodlands.
Cllr Williams said: "I'd like to thank Rose MIlnes and Ken Hoskisson for showing me around and the staff and volunteers at Woodlands who I met on the day.
"It was a memorable visit. I am forever astounded by the dedication and commitment of everyone who is involved in the work of the hospice. This is exactly why Woodlands is on of my chosen charities as Mayor of Maghull.
"They are an inspiration and they deserve all the support that we can give them."
