Meyer House Care Home Raises £1,500 For Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice
Charity calendar is very a popular fundraiser!
Last year here at Meyer House Care Home, our staff created and sold a special 2018 charity calendar, to support our local Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice.
Our Home Manager Gill Redsell, and her wonderful team of Care Assistants and Nurses, donned some crazy and creative outfits (from golfers to gardeners!), to represent the different calendar months. They also secured some local sponsors to support them. They then set to work selling as many copies of the calendar as possible to raise valuable funds for such a great cause.
Ahead of the 'big cheque' presentation on Thursday 15 March, when a Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice representative will visit us to receive the donation, we received a kind message from the Hospice:
“We were delighted to hear about Gill’s charity calendar in support of the Hospice – such a creative way to raise much needed funds! £1,500 is a fantastic amount to have raised! This money will support our work alongside staff in Care Homes across the Greenwich and Bexley boroughs, helping us to deliver training to staff, equipping them with the skills they need to provide excellent end of life care to their residents, and offering ongoing guidance and support. We couldn’t do what we do without the support of our community. Thank you to Gill and everyone at Meyer House!”
Gill and her team at Meyer House are always looking for fun ways to engage with their local community, all the while supporting charities close to their hearts. Well done team for your efforts and dedication!
