George Thomas Hospice

What's the challenge?

George Thomas Hospice Care is Cardiff's local hospice.  They care for more than 1000 patients and families every year.  The people they care for have been diagnosed with Cancer or other life limiting conditions, and are facing the end of their lives.  They help them come to terms with their diagnosis, remain independent and enhance the quality of their lives.  Patients can attend the day centre unit where they can socialise, take part in activities and meet new people.  They can also access counselling, adjustments to their home, support with applying for benefits and grants.

George Thomas Hospice would love a team to refresh their Summer House, which sits in their patient gardens, but is currently under used. It was originally purchased with a grant from Zurich and it is well loved by patients - it offers a warm haven for patients who would love to be outside but who are too frail.
The Summer House was very recently painted by a kind team of Zurich volunteers, however, while it now looks lovely on the outside, it could really do with a refresh inside to make it as comfortable as possible - ideally with a repainted bench, some new cushions and throws.
The hospice also has two small sheds in the gardens that could do with a lick of pain and the clearing of the overgrown area behind them. Photos >

It is often very difficult for a small organisation to set aside funds for redecorating.
They would love a small team to come into their office to paint a meeting room which is looking very tired and is in much need of a makeover. The room is multi purpose and is used for:  Counselling, Training /Coping with Life Courses, One to One sessions, Staff meetings and Board meetings. Photos >
