intu Uxbridge Makes Michael Sobell Hospice a Little More Comfortable

Good-hearted staff at intu Uxbridge made life a little nicer for those who are going through a particularly difficult time. The center recently sent in a team of intu staff to revamp the family room at Michael Sobell Hospice, so the families of those in hospice and palliative care can relax in a fresh, welcoming room.

The hospice is intu Uxbridge’s charity of the year, and the center hopes to raise £25,000 to fund a nurse for a year. But this redesign also gave center staff a chance to form close, personal ties to Michael Sobell Hospice as they spent their time repainting the room in a fashionable new color provided by Wickes, and replacing furnishings and decor with new items provided by Next.

Lisa Trodd, Assistant Marketing Manager at intu Uxbridge, said “It was fantastic to be able to support…Michael Sobell Hospice by giving their family room revamp this week, with thanks to our wonderful staff. We hope that the new rooms will be warmly welcomed by families of those under their care.”

The new family room was officially opened by celebrity interior designer Linda Barker last week, and hospice staff were very pleased.

Ursula Reeve, Head of Palliative Care at Michael Sobell Hospice, said, “We are delighted with the makeover. The new look family room is bright, comfortable and welcoming and will be a lovely area for our patients, their families and our staff to spend time in. Many thanks to everyone involved at intu Uxbridge for making this project happen.”

British Heart Foundation Explores the Sudden Pain of Heart Disease

It couldn’t be a more ordinary YouTube video: a woman behind the camera introduced her amazing dog, who can catch anything you throw at him. And catch he does. He manages a teddy bear, a hat, and a rubber chicken, among other common toys.

Out of nowhere, however, things take a turn for the tragic as the narrator hesitates. The camera shakes, then falls to the ground, and a hand limply releases the shoe that was about to be thrown. Without warning, the dog is confused, bereft, and alone.

It’s an ad from the British Heart Foundation, part of a new campaign that means to show the sudden, devastating impact of heart disease. Some, like this ad, are meant to shock. Others, like the campaign’s TV ad, are meant to help us understand just how hard a sudden death by hearth attack could be on those who love us.

Heart disease is heartless, it reminds us, when 1-in-4 loved ones still die from heart and circulatory disease.
