Keech Hospice Care provides specialists care for adults and children diagnosed with life-limiting or terminal illness through their hospices in Luton and Milton Keynes. Their aim is to help patients enjoy the highest quality of life, while providing vital support for their family and friends.

During their time at the Hospice the Lombard staff who travelled from around the country for the day repainted two offices, relocated a pool table to the newly extended day centre and tided up the outside grounds.

Simon Lort, relationship manager from Lombard who helped with the organisation of the day said: "The day itself was hard work but was also very rewarding. The hospice undertakes very valued work and we hope that our small contribution will in some way add benefit to the residents and also to the staff who put in so much hard work and effort in providing the care and the services that they do."

Mike Keel, chief executive of Keech Hospice Care adds: "I visited the team on the day to personally thank them for their time. We rely on volunteers such as Simon and his colleagues to help us in our desire to provide the best care we can for our residents and their efforts will make a valued difference to both staff and residents alike."
