About the event

Following the great success of last years tea party, The Friends of PATCH in the Borders are having a second afternoon tea in aid of PATCH. In addition to some wonderful baking, there will be a raffle, sale of designer clothes and sale of hand-knitted tea cosies.

Tickets are £15.

All funds raised from the afternoon event are being used to support a local project in the Borders General Hospital. Nurses working in the general wards of the Borders General Hospital will be working alongside specialist palliative care staff from the Margaret Kerr Unit and from St Columba’s Hospice, Edinburgh.

The aim is to enhance the palliative care skills of ward staff at the Borders General Hospital. So far, 12 nurses have received this additional training and it is hoped to extend this to as many nurses as possible, and to extend the training to Health Care Assistants.
