Civil servants bridge the GAP

You will remember our recent article on the Family Fun Day we held at Edge Hill University raising money for our local hospices. Well today we were proud to present a cheque of £275 to Trinity Hospice in Blackpool.

But today, wasn't just about presenting them with a cheque, it was also the first of a series of sessions we have organised to help support the patients, their families and friends. It's called the GAP project and in a nutshell we provide practical information and advise about various government services right to their doorstep. We have a number of representatives from a variety of government departments holding group discussions, one to one support or whatever is needed.

It's a great opportunity to support our more vulnerable customers and indeed one of the patients was very kind and told us:

Very happy with the service, the team were very helpful and polite

A great day, a great cause!! Watch out for the full report due in the next few weeks.
