In 2011 a charity was established called Families Supporting Care. Its aim is to help support residents whose funds diminishduring their stay, so they can continueliving in their home. Also, it helps support the local Alzheimer’s café and the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice.
The Trustees all have a close connection with the homes. It is the Trustees who decide how the funds are allocated. Regular quiz’s, garden parties and BBQ’s are held along with staff fundraising events.
The friends of Woodlands and Hill Brow are always looking for volunteers to help organise and support activities, such as a secretary and fundraisers.
Fundraising is an on-going commitmentandallfunds raised aresupplemented by a regular donation from the Lee family.
