A centre which offers a range of therapy sessions and flexible drop in consultations to patients with incurable illnesses has been opened by a hospice in Kenton.
The Woodgrange Centre is an extension to the services provided by St Luke’s Hospice in Kenton Road.
The centre will also provide more complementary therapy sessions including acupuncture, aromatherapy and reflexology, helping to relieve pain, breathlessness, nausea and anxiety.
It was opened after the St Luke’s annual Christmas Market which raised £4,000 for the hospice.
Jo Archer, director of nursing and patient services at St Luke’s, said: ‘We are proud to open officially the new Woodgrange Centre to the Brent and Harrow Community.
“Thanks to local supporters and the generous donations in our Strengthen a Life summer campaign and the continued dedication of our staff and volunteers, we are able to help people at an earlier stage of their illness and improve their well being and help them to stay active and independent for as long as possible.”
St Luke’s is looking for volunteers to help with their gift wrapping stall in St George’s and St Ann’s shopping centre in the run up to Christmas.
If you would like to volunteer your time to wrap visit www.stlukes-hospice.org/wrap or phone Jemini on 020 8382 8018.
