Stafford Based Care Home Raises More than £500 Following Car Boot Fundraiser

A Stafford based care home raised more than £500 following a car boot fundraiser.

MHA Weston and Queensway managed to raise the amount through a mixture of donations and sales, with staff and relatives donating items to sell.

Items such as clothing, crockery and ornaments were some of the sought-after items at the Stafford Car Boot Sale.

Collectively £515.00 was raised, with the funds going towards the home’s amenity fund, which is used to arrange trips or events for residents.

Bruce Eastwood, catering manager who was there on the day said
“It was an amazing day, people were full of enthusiasm and very supportive.

“When they realised the money was going towards a charitable cause they were rounding up the pennies to pounds and it was to see the community supporting us.”

Tess Turner, activity coordinator said: “The car boot fundraiser was a huge success, and we are very happy with the outcome.

“The amount raised will allow us to arrange activities for residents and I already have a few ideas in the pipeline.

“I want to thank everyone who got involved, it was a great effort by all, and we are very pleased with the outcome.

“We are aiming to arrange another car boot sale later on this month to get rid of the remaining items we have and hopefully that will give us another push.”
