In 2003, when she heard the plight of staff at Teule hospital in Muheza dying from HIV/AIDs, she set up the staff fund, where more than 50 of her friends covenanted £5 a month with gift aid added, through the charity Medicines for Muheza, to provide treatment and keep Teule staff alive and healthy. It has been used latterly to help support the wages of staff at Muheza Hospice, the hospice attached to Teule hospital.
Tomorrow (Friday) at 7.30pm sees the launch of an appeal in Bodenham Parish Hall, in memory of Carol, in an attempt to raise interest and funding to try and cover the increasing hospice salary gap. The evening will start with a short talk about the current situation in Muheza explaining what the hospice provides. This will be followed by a ploughman’s supper and puddings, with lots of time for chat and to remember Carol. Entry free but pudding donations will be welcome.
