FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN: Wheels and Slings

Posted 24th February 2021

Our care home residents have had tough time being stuck indoors for a year now with limited visiting. We are so proud of the way they have coped. We would like to cheer them up.

Most of our care home residents are in wheelchairs now and several are tatty. We want to buy at least 5 new ones. We also want to increase our stock of hoist slings so that every resident who needs one has their own.

We aim to raise £3,000 and have set up a Just Giving campaign as follows:

We will be encouraging all care home residents to go on at least 1 lap of the garden in March in their wheelchairs as the weather allows. It will be good for them to go outside and it would be great if you could sponsor them! 5 laps is 1 mile. Every £1 helps.

We are really missing the input of our League of Friends who have been unable to run events for the past year. Their fundraising events normally help us to buy essential equipment.

Thank you for your support.
