The plaster's gettin' harder and my love is perfection

The Mary Potter Hospice is a fine donation-funded institution* that provides palliative care (and decent drugs) to terminally-ill clients, along with a general philosophy that the last few weeks or months of one's life are as significant as any other period.

Fund-raising is a yearly necessity.
“Mary Potter Hospice’s philosophy is to help our patients and their families make the most of life,” [the Chief Executive] says, “and the theme of this street appeal is “Holding Mummy’s Hands”.

“For some of our young mothers we have cast their hands in plaster so their children throughout their lives can always put their hands into Mummy’s hands in times of trouble. It is a loving legacy mothers can leave their children.”
Hospice staff were not well-pleased with my suggestion for a similar casting-related service that they could offer to moribund members of the priesthood.

* Possible COI here; not entirely unbiassed.
