Nature brought indoors for hospice patients

Leeds Photographic group picture


STUNNING scenery and wonderful wildlife is being brought indoors for patients in a Yorkshire hospice – thanks to a project which has seen striking images caught on camera ready to be displayed in a new in-patient ward.

Members of the Leeds Photographic Society have captured the images to provide talking points for residents and their families at the Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice in Headingley, Leeds.

And now, thanks to financial backing from Neil Hudgell Solicitors, they are being produced ready to go on display, with many depicting areas in and around the city where patients lived and grew up.

Donna Woodman, regional fundraising manager for the hospice, says both patients and staff are looking forward to the 12 large acrylic pictures going on display.

“This has been a real community project and the Leeds Photographic Society has been tremendous in their support,” she said.

“I have seen the pictures taken by the members and they are really striking, and I am sure they will really be a focal point for our patients. We love to provide something to stir peoples’ memories and help them to remember the good times.

“As many of these pictures are taken in and around Leeds, they will do just that.”

The project has been made possible by support from our community Trust, which supports projects across Yorkshire with financial support through its community trust.

It has provided close to £1,000 to make this project possible, covering the cost of converting the images into striking wall displays.

Ian Wray, vice chairman of the Leeds Photographic Society, which was formed in 1852 and is the longest established in the world, said it had been a hugely rewarding project for their members to be involved in.

“We were delighted to be asked by the hospice to provide these images for patients, and we are sure they will be very popular when they are on the walls,” said Mr Wray.

“They bring the beauty of Yorkshire landscapes and nature inside for the patients, and hopefully it will help take their minds off their own health situations and let them focus on something stunning.

“As a group we often run competitions and have speakers for our members, but to be involved in a project like this, where we are giving something back to the community, is very rewarding and a pleasure to be involved in.”

Jo Hudgell, head of the Trust, says this is exactly the kind of project it is delighted to support.

The medical negligence and personal injury specialist has ploughed more than £80,000 into community projects and good causes across Yorkshire over the past two years, and is currently accepting new applications ahead of its latest deadline on Monday, March 31.

“Our aim is always to give something back to the community by supporting projects which have a positive impact on lives,” said Mrs Hudgell.

“As well as focusing on those which help raise aspirations in the young, we have been keen to identify projects which support the elderly and vulnerable, and this is doing just that.

“We can’t ever really begin to imagine what life is like for patients living with life-limiting or terminal illnesses, but hopefully these pictures will brighten up day to day life for them, provide something for them to talk about, and hopefully evoke some happy memories.”

Wheatfields Hospice provides palliative care for over 2,500 people living with incurable illnesses each year in the north west, west and south of Leeds.

Established over 35 years ago, Sue Ryder not only provides specialist medical care to ease pain and discomfort, but also offers people and their families real emotional support during what can be extremely difficult times.
