Equipment amnesty declared at Airedale Hospital
1:09pm Wednesday 4th December 2013 in Pendle
VOLUNTEERS and staff at Airedale Hospital have joined forces to declare a second equipment amnesty in a bid to recover lost wheelchairs, walking frames and other walking aids.
The hospital held a similar amnesty nearly two years ago and hundreds of pairs of crutches, walking sticks, and walking aids worth around £3,000, plus several wheelchairs, were returned during the month-long initiative.
The amnesty is being supported again by the Friends of Airedale, one of the hospital’s charities, and therapy staff at Airedale Hospital.They want people to return any equipment they have may have but do not use, with ‘no questions asked’.
For people who do not have transport to take equipment back to Airedale Hospital, they can call the charity’s patient transport service on 01535 294626.
The amnesty runs until the end of December.
