Catenian Charity Donations

At a recent Sheffield event Professor Philip Hopkins, President of the Wakefield Catenian Circle presented a cheque for £1,533.50 to the Bethlehem Care and Hospice Trust. Receiving the cheque on behalf of the Charity Joe McNally thanked Philip and his Circle for their support for the first (and only) licensed Hospice Service in Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT). The money raised will help pay for nursing care and support for the 48 terminally ill people now being cared for by the service.

 

At a subsequent Sheffield event Professor Mike Campbell, President of Sheffield Catenian Circle presented a cheque for £200 to the Bethlehem Care and Hospice Trust.

Accepting the cheque and thanking Mike and the Circle for their support Joe McNally on behalf of the Bethlehem Care and Hospice Trust said, The great need for end of life care far outstrips what we can supply. Although we have just commenced providing care in the Bethlehem area our ambition is to extend our care service to other towns and villages in Palestine that are now crying to us for help’. We cannot do this alone and we urgently need your support. This donation is earmarked for medication and it will help to relieve pain.
