Snowdogs by the Sea Special
Registered Charity No. 802145
Welcome I’m delighted to be able to show you the results of Martlets brand refresh – I know the new colours and images will help us bring our care to life. This is our first newsletter in this style and we’d love to know what you think. It’s not long now until a pack of giant Snowdog sculptures descend on the city. This is by far our biggest fundraising campaign ever so we’re celebrating with a Martlets Mail Snowdogs Special. The trail runs till the end of November so I hope you have time to join in. Of course we’re holding some Snowdog themed events; you can read more on pg 6. In Our Stories we’ve featured an interview with Sue, one of our Discharge Buddies who helps to settle patients at home after they’ve left the ward. It’s a new project that’s going from strength to strength and we’re looking for new volunteers to join up. All the details are on pg 9. Thank you for supporting Martlets.

Good Grief During Dying Matters Week in May we held a unique bereavement support day at the Unitarian Church right in the heart of Brighton. Over 100 local people came along and for many it was a chance to light a candle or write a dedication on a leaf to hang on our Memory Tree. We encouraged visitors to take a pebble home as a reminder of their loved one. Our therapists also showed them how they could create memory boxes, forget-me-not pots and sand jars. For us it was a chance to bring together local and national support groups, including Cruse and Winston’s
Full of Pride! This year more than fifty staff and volunteers proudly took part in Brighton Pride parade and we got a heartwarming reception from the crowds lining the streets of Brighton & Hove.
Wish, as well as counsellors and volunteers from the Hospice’s own bereavement service. Jane Cato, our Counselling and Bereavement Services Manager said: “The day was a great success with around 130 people taking part. It was an opportunity for them to talk about bereavement, to share their experiences of grief and to gain support. “Everyone felt it was worthwhile and we hope to hold it again next year. I’d like to say a very big thank you to everyone who took part and made this event the great success that it was.”
Play Martlets Lottery
0 0 5 1 £
Help us change lives Since the lottery was set up in 2000 it has raised more than £2 million, which has helped us provide life-changing hospice care to hundreds of people living in Brighton & Hove. People like Jo. We cared for her Grandad at home and when, when he knew he didn’t want to go into hospital our Hospice at Home team were able to help. They cared for him in the comfortable, familiar surroundings of his home where he died with his family around him. Jo described it as “lovely and peaceful”. For every £1 we raise from Martlets Lottery 70p goes directly to patient care, helping patients like Jo’s Grandad and their family to live through a terminal illness.
M&S Team abseils for Martlets Seven brave staff members from the Brighton Marks and Spencer store abseiled 115 feet down Peacehaven Cliffs to raise £700 for the Hospice in July. Rick Holmes, the store’s Commercial Manager, said: “We saw that the Hospice was running the abseil and a couple of people wanted to take part and persuaded everyone else. We all go to the gym and keep ourselves fit so we were enthusiastic about doing something quite physical. “As well as the abseil itself, we’ve been doing some fundraising instore with a static bike ride and collection buckets to raise some extra money for the Hospice. “The Hospice is the charity that our staff voted to support this year, so we’ll be doing lots of different activities to fundraise for them because it’s such an important local cause.” Antonia Shepherd from the Hospice’s Events Team said: “The staff at Marks and Spencers have been doing a tremendous job in raising money and awareness for the Hospice. We’re really grateful to have their support this year.”

Solar success! At the end of last year we installed solar panels on the hospice roof, 200 in total. And, even though it might not feel like it we have seen enough sunshine this summer, we were surprised to find that our new solar panels have been able to produce 23 megawatt hours
of electricity. To put that into context an average house uses 16 megawatt hours in a year. Of course this is a huge achievement for Martlets, we’ve saved £3,500 in energy bills this year alone. We’ve also been able to reduce our impact on the environment as we’ve saved 9 tonnes in Co2 emissions.
Events Pedal in Preston Park A fun-filled family ride Saturday 15th October Time to hop on and see how many laps of Preston Park’s historic cycle track you can ride. This is our cycling challenge for the whole family, even the littlest legs can join in. Each lap is 600 metres long so set yourself a family challenge. Who can ride the furthest? Go at your own pace, the event runs all day so there’s plenty of time. There’ll also be our legendary Pedal cake sellers to help keep you well fuelled so you go the distance.

We know you’re going to love Snowdogs by the Sea, our extraordinary public art trail that hits the streets of Brighton & Hove on 24th September. Martlets Hospice has teamed up with Wild in Art to fill the streets with 45 giant Snowdogs individually decorated by artists and generously sponsored by local businesses and organisations. Our magical sculpture trail was inspired by the much-loved animated short film, The Snowman™ and The Snowdog, based on the book by Raymond Briggs. Each Snowdog has been designed by a different artist and with everything from Mod Dog to Newshound, the quirky characters are bound to surprise and delight.

Main picture: June and our Discharge Coordinator Judith Inset: June and Sue
Hospice Buddies Leaving the Inpatient unit can be a daunting time for some of our patients so we’ve developed a new scheme to support them. Specially trained volunteers called ‘discharge buddies’ work closely with patients as they leave the inpatient unit and in the first few weeks at home to help them settle and feel safe. Sue is one of our first volunteers in this scheme. New to Brighton she thought it sounded interesting and would help her get to know her community. “I’m retired now but when I was working I enjoyed working with people so when I saw this role I thought ‘yes, I can do that!’ After two days of interactive training run by Judith our discharge coordinator and Stuart one of our social workers our new volunteers were ready to start. Sue soon had her first patient to take home. June had been on the inpatient unit for nearly four weeks, two days before she was due to go to home Sue popped along to introduce herself. June mentioned that she thought

“discharge buddy” was a lovely name for someone to help get her settled at home, so she and Sue were off to a good start. “I arrived at Martlets after lunch, as arranged and travelled with June in a taxi to her house. We were met by her new live-in carer who would be there to attend to household tasks and personal care if necessary. “All was well at home, we managed to find out how to turn on the hot water and a good friend had made sure there was enough milk, tea and bread in the house.” “I made sure that the bed was made, that June had all her tablets to hand
and both she and her carer knew what the medication was for. I checked that they had the phone numbers for her GP, pharmacy and Martlets “Hub” in case of emergency.” “By the time I left, June and her carer seemed confident that they could manage. I’ve visited several times since and always felt the three of us worked well together to settle June back at home. I’ve done my last visit to June now and I felt my role was complete.” “I found this role rewarding; I was able to offer practical help like making her bed or doing some shopping on my way round. A few days after she got home June ran out of part of her medication, as I was still her Buddy I was able to get the extra medication she needed from Martlets so that she didn’t have to wait to get her repeat prescription. It was good to be able to keep that link with Martlets for her.” “I always felt that I was well supported by the Martlets team and could phone at any time for advice and help. I’m looking forward to being involved with many more patients.”
Volunteers Norma spends her Monday morning volunteering on our InPatient Unit. She explained that no two shifts are ever same and told us why it’s as rewarding for her as it is for Martlets. “On IPU Reception I deal with the ward clerk, doctors, nurses, patients and their visitors. I answer the phone, answer queries and get messages to patients. I’m happy to help with things like booking ambulances for patients, filling gaps on the nurses’ rota, or faxing orders to the pharmacy. I’m always there to offer visitors tea and sympathy when it’s needed. I love getting to know the doctors, nurses, patients and visitors and so I do this for myself as much as for the hospice. But it is rewarding to know that you are playing a small part in helping this wonderful place to function.”

Art therapy Ella works with one of our volunteer Art Therapists, Lucy. She’s been seeing her for the last few months. Ella is blind, she has eye cancer and sadly last autumn lost her sight. Five years ago she was diagnosed with leiomyosarcoma, a smooth muscle tumour and now she finds it hard to move around. Even sitting up is uncomfortable. Ella met Lucy one of our Art Therapists, while she was staying on the Inpatient Unit earlier in the year, and arranged a 1-1 session with her. These sessions started at the beginning of March. I asked what happens at an Art Therapy session.
“You can do anything really. You talk about what’s going on with you and try to put that into an image. “It’s a different way to express yourself and it’s less direct than talking. I used to paint a lot before I lost my sight. Losing my sight was quite a loss. “I started making things with clay - I couldn’t see what I was actually making, so sometimes I would just squidge a piece between my fingers while I was talking to Lucy. Then she’d describe it to me and we would talk about it. I seemed to have a bit of a thing about trees.” Ella’s art therapy sessions continued after she left the inpatient unit to go home. Getting ready to visit the hospice once a week was starting
MAKE A GIF T...
Your support to become harder, Ella couldn’t sit properly because of where the tumours were and so she had to lie on the floor during her sessions. Patrick, our Day Services Manager, heard about this and made sure Ella had a reclining chair to use instead which helped for a while. In May it became just too hard to get to the hospice, sitting upright in a car was impossible so Lucy started visiting her at home. That was when Ella began expressing herself through poetry. “It was my idea to write poems, it’s hard to make anything when you’re lying down. I started working on them using a little digital recorder, then I could edit them with Lucy. We’d tweak them together and she’d write them for me. This poem took me about four weeks to produce. “I like my poems to be a little bit specific and a bit vague so people can put their own take on it. I wanted to add a comedic end to it.”
We’ve been caring for Ella at home and in the hospice Ella lives at home with her Mum and around the time she lost her sight her doctor referred her to Martlets. It was a shock and seemed like a big step to get involved but her doctor was reassuring. In January she stayed on the inpatient unit for two weeks and while she was on the ward she heard about our Complementary Therapy service. Ella had acupuncture with Josie, and sessions for massage and reiki. “I think the touch and the care are the main things for me, physical contact is a big thing when you’re ill”.
It’s thanks to our supp orters we’re able to care for pe ople like Ella and her family when they need it, at home an d in the hospice. Your donations mean we can provide life-ch anging care for local people. Sadly Ella died a few we eks before we went to print, however her Mum thoug ht this feature would be a fitting tribute to her. We’d lik e to thank Ella and her family for allowing us to tell their story.
Helpful Hub Through our phone line called the ‘Hub’ we’ve been able to support Ella and her family whenever they need it, even if that’s late on a Friday night and she’s at home. We work in partnership with Sussex Community Trust to provide this free support line – open 24/7, seven days a week. “We’ve always found the ‘hub’ very, very helpful. It’s often late on Friday night that something seems to flare up, they’ve got all my details and the staff are always bright and cheery; you know you haven’t woken them up! It’s been so valuable to Mum and me. “At least twice I’ve woken up with a temperature which means I’ve got an infection that needs to be treated urgently with antibiotics. Staff at the ‘hub’ have contacted the out of hours GP, who can send my prescription to the local 24 hr chemist, my friend can pick it up and I can start taking them straight away. Being able to get antibiotics so quickly would probably save me and Mum a night waiting on a bench in A & E.”
We care for patients like Ella and her family every day of the year. We’re here when they need us, on the end of the phone in the middle of the night or visiting in person. Hospice care isn’t just for the last few weeks of life, it’s care for local people who are living through a terminal illness. We know that the earlier we can reach people in their illness the more we can help. Whether that’s a massage to relieve pain, a chance to talk openly about fears for the future or time to meet people who are in the same boat. As you see after reading through this edition of Martlets Mail we’re much more than a hospice. However Martlets can only offer this kind of care thanks to our supporters, people like you. Last year we helped nearly 2,500 people. We need your support to do that again this year. Every donation you give to Martlets helps us change lives.
