Big Breakfast on the Menu to Support Respiratory Patients

Visitors to County Hospital, Louth are being invited to tuck into a 'Big Breakfast' on Friday, November 20, for a good cause.

From 9am until 11:30am, the Workhouse Diner within the hospital will be open to all and a percentage of the breakfast sales will be donated to the British Lung Foundation.

The event has been organised by the Louth Respiratory Team from Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS), to promote awareness of respiratory related illnesses and the work the British Lung Foundation does to support those with lung disease.

Julie Bevan, Complex Case Manager for LCHS said: "Across Lincolnshire we have a very high percentage of patients with respiratory diseases and COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). Although, there is no cure for COPD my team work hard to give patients hope and support to learn how to live with the disease. We just want to make a difference to these patients' lives and raise awareness of support available.

"The Big Breakfast is a great way for everyone to learn about respiratory disease and how the British Lung Foundation can provide support, while raising much-needed funds for their important work.

"We are hugely grateful to the Workhouse Diner for supporting us with the Big Breakfast event."

Staff will be on hand to answer questions form patients and the public on a range of topics, including support courses, nutrition and hydration. Members of the public are welcome to attend.

Katie Lyall, Events Manager at the British Lung Foundation, said: "We are delighted that the respiratory team at Louth will be hosting a big breakfast to support the British Lung foundation. Every contribution makes a difference and funds raised will go towards ensuring that we can continue to offer vital support for people with lung disease, as well as their partners, families and friends."
