More news from the Earl Mountbatten Hospice. Ed
Patients, families and visitors to Earl Mountbatten Hospice (EMH) are in for a culinary treat on 28th April, thanks to renowned Island chef and winner of the Isle of Wight’s first Michelin star, Robert Thompson.
Robert and his team have agreed to spend the day at the Hospice rustling up some delicious seasonal delights. As well as preparing food for the inpatient unit, Robert will also be treating visitors in the EMH public café to some of his tasty dishes.
Thompson: “Happy to share my passion”
Robert is keen to show his support for the Hospice and to help raise funds and awareness of its services and support for patients and families. It is widely acknowledged that food and nutrition play a vital part in end of life care, and EMH is already well-known for providing a rich and varied menu for its patients and families as well as visitors to its Sunflower Café.
“We are really happy to bring Thompson’s to Earl Mountbatten Hospice. Food has been a part of my life for so long, I am very happy to share my passion with people coming to the end of their life and with such an important local charity.”
Bringing something special
CEO of EMH, Nigel Hartley, said
“We are so fortunate to have the support of Robert and his team. When people are dying, experience shows us that eating and drinking becomes even more important.
“To have Robert’s support is going to bring something very special, both to those who use hospice services more long term, as well as those who are in the last days and weeks of their life.”
