A Welwyn Garden City-based charity has received £1,455 thanks to a cash boost from Affinity Water’s Community Engagement Fund.

The money went to Isabel Hospice, an independent adult hospice which provides specialist palliative care for patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families, The charity aims to provide care and support to patients to encourage and enable them to retain their independence.

The hospice has used the money to buy a ‘Motomed’ arm trainer, which helps to strengthen and increase mobility for arms and legs as well as monitoring cardiovascular activity.

Adam Warner, chair of the community review panel at Affinity Water, said: “We are pleased to have the chance to support Isabel Hospice. Affinity Water is a community-focused organisation serving local people and we want to be involved in projects which benefit the communities we serve.”
