The vital work carried out by Jersey Hospice Care has been highlighted in a new video about the service. The short film, Jersey Hospice Care: Working Hand in Hand, was made by Ruth Carswell and Funk Productions and funded by local law firm Carey Olsen. The film outlines the professional services Jersey Hospice Care offers at Clarkson House, which include palliative care and bereavement counselling.

Jersey Hospice Care relies on the financial support of the public as well as its hardworking and dedicated volunteers. It provides holistic care, free of charge, twenty four hours a day for patients with cancer and motor neurone disease.

Lynsey Beahan, Fundraising Manager at Jersey Hospice Care said: “This video not only offers viewers a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the services provided to Jersey residents but also highlights our need for ongoing funding.”

“Jersey Hospice Care relies solely on the income generated by our shops, our fundraising activities and our supporters. This film demonstrates how that money is used and its importance to the people who rely on the Hospice. We are extremely grateful for all of the support we have had from Ruth Carswell, Funk Productions and Carey Olsen in producing this video,” said Miss Beahan.

Steven Hunt, Director of Marketing at Carey Olsen, said the firm were pleased to help promote awareness of Jersey Hospice Care: “Each year Jersey Hospice Care supports the physical and emotional wellbeing of numerous members of the local community. Their work is essential and we hope this short film will bring more awareness of their service to a larger audience and help secure future funding for Jersey Hospice Care.”
