The trustee team behind one of Worle’s best-loved buildings has supported Weston Hospicecare’s Comfort & Care appeal by buying a bed for the charity’s in-patient unit.

The appeal aims to raise more than £50,000 to replace outdated beds, chairs and mattresses to improve and modernise the care provided to patients.

Worle Village Club – which manages the building currently occupied by Worle Century Club – handed over £2,682 for the cause.

The money will pay for a specialist bed to enable patients to adjust their positions.

The group has also supported Weston General Hospital, and contributed to schools, churches and sports clubs throughout the area.
