Derian House Children’s Hospice has undergone a £190,0000 refurbishment to improve facilities.
Many of the bathroom suites at the Chorley-based facilityhave been fully re configured Hoists and existing toilets have been removed and replaced with modern sanitary ware.
Bedrooms and staff rooms have been re-modelled and decorated to give the hospice a fresh look.
Work has also been carried out to give the building a more modern look.
As a result, there is new wall tiling, flooring, partitioning while the reception and staff room have been re-decorated and plastered to include a range of electrical points.
The work was carried out by Eric Wright Special Projects, which was set up last year as part of the Bamber Bridge based Eric Wright Group, .
The company completed the work a week ahead of schedule to allow people to use the facility.
Mark Smith, site manager for Eric Wright Special Projects, said: “It’s always our aim to try and meet our client’s expectations or even exceed them and we are delighted to have delivered this work for a wonderful charity.”
The changes to the centre will provide additional facilities for children and young people, helping to maintain the high standard of specialist care and support the individual needs of families and children.
Staff and supporters at thehospice, in Astley Village, near Chorley, are confident that the refurbishment will make a huge difference to their work.
Georgina Cox, chairman of the hospice’s trustees, said: “We are delighted with the work Eric Wright’s have completed. It was a privilege to work with them.
“They were extremely helpful, keeping the areas spotless throughout.”
