Sako and Doumbia visit in-patients

 

Wolves Aid celebrated the donation of £20,000 to Compton Hospice with a little help from two of Wolves football stars, Bakary Sako and Tongo Doumbia. 

Sako and Doumbia visited the hospice, on Compton Road West and not far from the club's training ground, to see the one of the new rooms which was built with the help of a £20,000 donation from Wolves Aid.

The en-suite facility is one of 18 at the hospice now used for treatment of in-patients and it forms part of the hospice's £3.5million redevelopment of its main patient unit, with the single rooms replacing multiple bed wards. 

The spacious rooms have showers, chairs and TVs are specially modified to include hoists for easier movement.

Suzanne Davis, Senior Fundraiser said: "Compton Hospice is very grateful to Wolves Aid for the donation which has played a big part in making the patients more comfortable in their stay."

Wolves Aid is this week celebrating handing out over £500,000 of donations in the last four years.
