Highland Hospice has been given a cash boost.

Global Energy Group, in partnership with Seaway7 and Seagreen Wind Energy Limited, has presented the Inverness-based charity with £1000.

It was January’s Hazard Observation Card Award and was in recognition for its work offering palliative and end of life care services since 1987.

The hospice provides:

• home care in several locations, allowing people to live at home for longer;

• the befriending team tackles the loneliness and isolation which often accompanies deteriorating health and is exacerbated in rural and remote areas;

• and the social work and bereavement services help children and adults to deal with the complexities of their feelings, both during their loved one’s illness and following their death.

Karen Duff, corporate fundraiser for the hospice, said: "As an independent charity, we rely on our communities both for their fundraising efforts and to help us extend our support outwith the Hospice building in Inverness, so thank you very much to the member of the Seagreen project team who kindly chose Highland Hospice – we are very grateful for the generous donation.

"Used locally, it will support people living with life-shortening illness with the best possible care, enabling them to enjoy the life they have left, cherish the things that matter most to them and die with the dignity they deserve.”
