Lions provide warmth and comfort to palliative care patients

Lions in Victoria have come together to provide some warmth and comfort for people living with serious illness at the Frankston Palliative Care Unit.

The Lions Clubs of Frankston, Mt Eliza, Mornington, Mount Martha and Balnarring proudly handed over a Blanket Warming Cabinet, used to heat blankets to warm and comfort patients of all ages in the palliative ward.

A cabinet like this costs over $4,000, with money raised by all five Lions Clubs.

Lions Julie (Frankston Lions Club), Janet and Brian (Mornington Lions Club) were there to gift the cabinet to the unit on Friday 26th May, which also coincided with Palliative Care Week.

National Palliative Care Week runs 21 May to 27 May 2023, and aims to put ‘Matters of Life and Death’ front and centre in Australia’s consciousness.
