Supporting Retired Fishermen

Posted on Thursday 31st March 2016

Keeping in touch with our retired fishing community in Hull is very important to us.  It is only through regular contact that we are able to see how people are and if there is anything we can do to support. During a recent visit we were able to establish that a retired fishermen needed support to get up and down stairs and needed a comfortably chair to sit in. This gentleman had been recently diagnosed with cancer and was suffering with severe back pain and breathlessness. He wanted to go upstairs to sleep but breathing difficulties were preventing him from doing so.  Applications to two charities were successful, providing him with a stair lift and rise and recliner chair to improve his quality of life.
