WHEN I was discharged from hospital in September after my heart operation I was supported by Herefordshire Red Cross Society for six weeks afterwards – as I was unable to drive after the operation.

During this time Belinda from the Red Cross came each Thursday for shopping, library books – all with a cheery smile.

After the six week period I was informed that due to funding this service would cease and they would not be able to provide such a worthwhile service for anyone leaving hospital as the current sponsor has had to withdraw their support.

I feel that this service is required to help anyone leaving hospital in the future.

Therefore, may I ask if there is any organisation in Hereford to sponsor them by contacting them at the Kindle Centre in Hereford?
