Husband makes donation to stroke ward which cared for his late wife

A HUSBAND whose late wife was cared for at Leamington Hospital after a stroke has seen a specialist chair donated to the ward which supported her.

John Durling’s wife Heather Ann was treated on Feldon Ward last year.

And the Warwickshire The Provincial Grand Chapter, which he is a member of, have donated a £4,300 specialist shower chair to the ward in her memory to make life a little easier for patients and staff.

Mr Durling said: “I am very pleased we are able to support Feldon Ward with this new addition. I am grateful for the care they gave to my wife last year and hope the new shower chair benefits many of their current and future patients.”

The chair is height adjustable and helps stroke sufferers with limited mobility.

Ward manager Chris Powell said: “We are incredibly grateful to The Provincial Grand Chapter of Warwickshire and Mr Durling for this very kind donation in memory of Mrs Durling. The new shower chair will really improve the experience of patients on the ward.”
