£105,000 Donation Supports Refurbishment At Skegness Hospital featured image
Two rooms at Skegness Hospital have been extended and refurbished, thanks to the largest ever single donation made by the town’s League of Friends.

The £146,000 project was funded through a £105,000 donation from the League of Friends, with the remaining balance paid for by Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS), which runs services at the hospital

Building work, completed by Boston firm Clarke Group Construction, has been ongoing since October 2014 while the rest of the ward has continued to operate as normal.

Karen Kerman, Skegness Hospital Matron for LCHS, said: “These two private rooms were originally very small and had no en-suite facility, meaning we were unable to use them to their full potential. Thanks to the kind donation from the League of Friends, we have been able to extend the building to give us more bedroom space and an en-suite bathroom. The decor has been especially chosen by the ward staff to make it feel more like a ‘home froimagem home’, the kind of special place we would like to stay in ourselves.

The League of Friends have supported Skegness Hospital for more than 50 years, buying vital pieces of equipment and giving donations for building projects, such as three day rooms and the Oaks room.

Bess Smith, Chairman of the Skegness Hospital League of Friends, said: “Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the years. We are thrilled with the new rooms and I know our founder members would be over the moon to know that we have been able to do this. We have been able to buy many pieces of equipment during our time, but these two rooms act as a permanent legacy for Skegness.”
