Volunteers, staff and families from Herriot Hospice Homecare are among the stars of a new TV campaign launched to celebrate the work of hospices across Yorkshire and the Humber.
The advert – the first of its kind for hospices in the region – is part of a campaign by ITV Yorkshire, to celebrate the work that adult and children hospices do for their communities.
Thirsk-based Herriot Hospice Homecare, which provides free personalised care to enable people to live comfortably and with dignity in their own home during the last weeks of their life, was represented in the advert by service managers, fundraisers and patients.
Producers hope to raise awareness of the high standard of support offered and encouraging supporters to ‘Keep Your Hospice Shining Brightly.’
The campaign highlights the expert care, comfort and support provided by hospices free of charge to growing numbers of people in the region.
Also featured in the short film – which is screened in daytime slots throughout March – are team members from Ashgate Hospice, Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, Dove House Hospice, Kirkwood Hospice, Martin House Children’s Hospice, Prince of Wales Hospice, Saint Michael’s Hospice, St Gemma’s Hospice, St Leonard’s Hospice and St Luke’s Hospice.
