An outreach service provided by St Catherine’s Hospice has been given a major shot in the arm, thanks to a trust set up in memory of a local builder.

The Ryedale Day Hospice has received £15,500 from the Wilfred Jackson Trust and will use the money to cover the running costs of the
Norton-based hospice.

David Marshall, director of funding development for St Catherine’s, said: “This is an extremely generous donation from the Wilfred Jackson Trust and we are very grateful.

“The day hospice is an extremely valuable resource for the hospice, helping us to bring palliative care services into the community and closer to people’s own homes.”

The Wilfred Jackson Trust was created following the death of Mr Jackson, a builder and property developer, last year.

Its mission is to offer help and assistance to families and people in Malton and Norton “by reason of poverty, age, illness and accident.”

Robert Tulloch, a senior partner with Pearsons and Ward Solicitors in Malton and a trustee with the Wilfred Jackson Trust, said: “This is the biggest donation the Trust has made so far and I am very pleased that it will be used to bring much-needed and appreciated hospice care to the people of Malton and Norton, in keeping with the objective of the Wilfred Jackson Trust.”
