Last year’s Mayor of the High Peak has visited Blythe House to hand over a cheque worth £530 for patient care and services.

Blythe House was one of Linda Grooby’s chosen charities whilst she was the mayor of the borough for 2018/19.

To raise money throughout the year, Linda asked for donations in lieu of Christmas cards, and held fundraising events including a civic ball with a raffle, and several civic meetings.

The funding will go directly towards influencing patient care here at Blythe House – £530 could pay for more than 30 hours of nighttime care for a local patient who wishes to remain in the comfort of his or her own home at the end of their life.
