FUNERAL donations in memory of a Carmarthenshire woman raised more than £1,000 for Prince Philip Hospital's acute medical assessment unit.

The funds were raised in memory of Mrs Olwen Ann Owen, with a total of £1,050 raised for the unit as a thank you for the care Mrs Owen received in the unit.

Mrs Owen's son Henry Owen said: "We are really pleased to be able to donate these funds to the acute medical assessment unit at Prince Philip Hospital.

"We are very grateful to the staff on AMAU for the wonderful care they gave our mother before she sadly passed away in May. We hope that this donation will be used to purchase two benches in the outdoor area by AMAU for patients and staff to be able to sit outside.

"We would like to thank everyone who kindly made a donation in memory of our dear mother."

Rosemary Jones, senior sister, said: “We would like to thank Mrs. Owen's family for their kind donation raised in her memory.

“I'm sure that patients and staff for years to come will benefit from their generosity, and we are grateful that the family have chosen us as beneficiaries of this money. Thank you.”

Nicola Llewelyn, head of Hywel Dda Health Charities -the official charity of Hywel Dda University Health Board, said: “The support of our local communities enables us to provide services over and above what the NHS can provide in the three counties of Hywel Dda and we are extremely grateful for every donation we receive.”
