WE'VE DONE IT!
THANK YOU to everyone who supported our Chevithorne Appeal. Whether you gave a 10p donation, cycled across the country or volunteered your time, you have contributed to an amazing facility, well done!
The Chevithorne Appeal has funded the ELF Family Suite at the RD&E. The Suite will enable patients to stay in relative comfort and privacy with their families when they need to be together. It comprises a family living space with a small kitchenette; a twin bedroom so that family members can stay over and a large patient bedroom with a private garden. The Suite's accommodation is flexible to allow for different types and sizes of families. For example, another bed can be wheeled alongside the patient's bed and there are 2 sofa beds offering additional sleeping space for larger families.
