Care Worker Raises Over £700 For Local Hospice

A care home support worker from Worcester has raised over £700 for a local hospice.

Karl Worthington, who works at Shaw Red Hill care home, raised the funds for St Richards Hospice with a 13,000 foot skydive at the Hinton Skydiving Centre in Brackley, near Oxford.

He was inspired to raise money after caring for Sid, a resident who had previously been at the hospice. Tragically, Sid later passed away, but after speaking with his family, Karl decided to arrange the skydive in his honour.

St Richard’s Hospice cares for around 2,500 patients and families in Worcestershire who are living with life-limiting illnesses, helping provide them with the best quality of life possible.

Karl said: “It really was a wonderful experience and knowing it was all for such a great cause made it even better. Thank you to everyone who has donated to this amazing cause”.

Shaw healthcare provides a spectrum of services from comprehensive care packages through to low level support in the community for older people and adults with physical, sensory or mental health support needs.
