AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest is paid and added to your account each year. From 6 April 2016, if you’re a basic rate tax payer you’ll be able to earn up to £1,000 in savings income tax free. Higher rate tax payers will be able to earn up to £500. Additional rate tax payers will not receive any allowance. This is called the Personal Savings Allowance. This means that most people will no longer pay tax on savings interest. Banks and building societies will stop deducting tax from your account interest.
Bolton Hospice is a modern, purpose-built unit with 14 beds plus extensive day care, outpatient and complementary therapy facilities.
The team at Bolton Hospice is dedicated to improving the quality of life for patients and the people close to them who face the problems associated with life-threatening disease.
Specialist 'Palliative Care' addresses all patient needs - not just the physical, such as the relief of pain and other symptoms, but also psychological and spiritual care. The aim is to enhance quality of life and also positively influence the course of illness.
They provide this care at the Hospice and also in the homes of patients who are in the final stages of life.
The Hospice team comprises medical staff, nurses, administrative and clerical staff, catering and housekeeping staff, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, social workers, fundraising staff, complementary therapists and chaplaincy.
The work of all these people - and the Hospice's superbly equipped premises - are paid for almost entirely by the generosity of people in Bolton through their donations large and small, and by the giving of their time as volunteers.
Please support us with a Furness Building Society Bolton Hospice Charity Account.
