Local Care Home Presents Cheque To Local Charity
Reigate Beaumont Care Home in Reigate recently presented The Patchworking Garden Project with a cheque for £2000 towards craft supplies and plants. This charity’s main gardening project is for those living with mental and physical disabilities.
The grant had been awarded by Barchester’s Charitable Foundation, a charity that helps older people and adults with a disability or mental health problems across England, Scotland and Wales by offering grants to help people connect or re-connect with others in their local community.
Staff and residents from the care home visited with charity members in their garden in Dorking to handover the cheque and celebrate them being awarded the grant.
Isobel Gowan, Chair of Trustees, said: “We are so delighted to receive these funds and connect with our local Barchester home. Our volunteers will enjoy making stained glass, choosing their own plants and doing other crafts with this grant”.
Pramojil Kurian, General Manager at Reigate Beaumont Care Home said: “We are always keen to show as much support as we can to local charities. Handing over this cheque to them has allowed us to meet new members of the community and we look forward to building a relationship with them and supporting them moving forward.”
Our varied life enrichment programme keeps residents active, and provides a daily choice of engaging physical, mental and spiritual activities tailored to residents’ interests and abilities.
