Easter marked at Penarth hospice

Families marked Easter at a Penarth hospice, with a special service and an afternoon tea.

The activities at the Marie Curie – Cardiff and the Vale Hospice, organised by deputy ward sister Gill Davies, helped in patients mark Easter Sunday.

The Reverend Mark Jones, of the Parish of Penarth and Llandough, attended and held a short service and communion in the day therapy unit, which was followed by an afternoon tea made by the hospice’s kitchen staff.

Nurses also attended with patients and their families, and helped distribute tea and food.

Gill said: “We try all year round to make sure patients and their families are included in festivities and celebrations, including big sporting events like the Six Nations.

“We are grateful to Reverend Mark for performing the service for our patients, and to our kitchen and ward staff for all their help and support for the event.”

The event followed on from a Christmas tea party which was held at the hospice in December, along with an Advent Calendar raffle held throughout December.

The hospice provides round-the-clock care and support to people living with a terminal illness, and their families.
