Cardiff Blues Flanker and City Hospice ambassador, Ellis Jenkins, paid a visit to Ty Hosbis yesterday, surprising our patients.
Ruby player Ellis and Alex James from iStadia Solutions, came along to Cardiff’s local hospice to promote the ‘Wales V Rest of the World Question of Sport’. The event takes place on Thursday 3rd October 2019 at the Principality Stadium. City Hospice is working in conjunction with EngageSport and with Headline Sponsors, iStadia Solutions.
City Hospice patients were introduced to Ellis in the charity’s Day Centre which caused much excitement. With plenty of Cardiff Blues fans in attendance, patients relished the chance to have a photo with the rugby hero.
Alex from iStadia said after meeting patients, he hoped the Question of Sport event would raise a great amount. “We’re excited to be working in partnership with City Hospice and sponsoring this fantastic sporting event. It was great going along to the hospice and not only hearing about the work they do, but also seeing it in action in their Day Centre.”
iStadia Solutions, based in Caerphilly, provide top of the range digital communications technology to companies including outdoor LED screens, pitchside led perimeter boards and digital signage solutions.
City Hospice is Cardiff’s local hospice, providing medical, nursing and end of life care to patients in their own homes. We offer counselling to adults and children, welfare advice and a range of activities. We are the only at-home palliative care provider for the city of Cardiff. This event will support the £2m we need to raise to keep providing these specialist services.
Liz Andrews, City Hospice CEO, would like to thank both Ellis Jenkins and iStadia for their support. “It was absolutely fantastic to have Ellis and Alex with us at the hospice. The patients loved meeting them and having their photographs taken! We really value their support. Thank you Ellis for captaining our Wales team and Alex, for agreeing to be the Headline Sponsor. Without valuable support like this, we wouldn’t be able to continue the vital work we do out in the Cardiff community, caring for patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families.”
