TELEVISION celebrity Eamonn Holmes is showing his support for Northern Ireland Hospice by launching and backing a campaign to raise funds to help fit-out bedrooms in the new adult hospice in Belfast.

The project will open soon in the north of the city, a short distance from where the SKY NEWS and This Morning presenter grew up.

Eamonn and wife Ruth Langsford are lending their support and helping to appeal for donations to pay for the equipment and furnishings required to fit-out the new hospice.

Donations from the public and organisations will help pay for a range of items including specialist pillows (£15), shower chairs (£78) and patient beds, which cost £1,700.

Eamonn Holmes said: “I’m delighted to be lending my support to Northern Ireland Hospice. Having grown up close to the Hospice, I know that many families use their services and how important and loved this local charity is by all of us.

“Our new Hospice will be caring for people and their families for generations to come, and they now need our support to make it a home from home. Please help to buy specialist beds, chairs, curtains, pillows and duvets. Your donation, large or small, will make a difference and help open the doors.”

Northern Ireland Hospice CEO, Heather Weir, said: “Northern Ireland Hospice only exists because of the support we receive day after day in Northern Ireland. I am continuously amazed and encouraged by the generosity and goodwill from local people, businesses and organisations. We are preparing to open your new hospice within weeks and we need your help to complete the fit-out.

“The new Hospice will include In-Patient unit, Day Hospice Service and an Education and Research Institute, allowing us to care for those at end of life with cancer related illnesses, neurological conditions and dementia.”

Eamon Holmes has also issued a video message calling for the public to support the NI Hospice Fit-Out campaign.
