Across our care homes and services, residents had a wonderful time enjoying a mixture of fun activities and celebrations last month. Here are our May highlights:
Malvern Day Care centre hosts its own Italian Job
Mercia Minis Car Club recently descended on our Malvern Day Care Centre in a group of classic, pristine Minis, much to the delight of the day care clients. They have a long history of supporting Malvern Day Care and visited to present a cheque to Manager, Shirley Bradley.
Encouraging our teams to ‘Unmind’ with new platform
At Friends of the Elderly, we have continued to build on our commitment to our employees by expanding upon our Wellbeing Pledge and introducing a new online workplace mental health platform.
Betty’s Birthday Celebrations at Bernard Sunley
Happy Birthday Betty! Bernard Sunley care home helped Betty celebrate her milestone 91st birthday with lots of cake, presents and a performance by her favourite singer Daniel Brewerton.
A kind donation to our Bournemouth care home
Thank you so much to the Wardrobe Foundation who kindly donated clothes as part of their Golden Rail initiative.
Residents at RNNH care home had a fabulous time choosing new outfits whilst enjoying nibbles and drinks.
What being a not-for-profit organisation means to us
Steve Allen, Chief Executive of Friends of the Elderly, writes a regular blog which gives insight into his role at the Charity.
Recently he shared a little bit more about our structure as a charity and what being a not-for-profit organisation means to us.
Buy or sell on eBay and raise money for older people
If you’re having a clear out, updating your wardrobe or have unwanted gifts lying around, why not sell them for a good cause?
Choose Friends of the Elderly as a ‘favourite’ charity on eBay, list your items, then donate anything from 1% to 100% of the sale. It’s quick and easy to set up, and you choose what percentage gets donated.
When you buy on eBay you can choose to add a donation too!
