Quality care specialist, Morris Care, has donated £530 to St Luke’s Hospice after visits at the home’s 25th anniversary celebrations reached record levels.
The summer garden party at The Corbrook Park Nursing Home in Audlem Cheshire, which was held to commemorate the nursing homes quarter of a century milestone, attracted over one hundred visitors including residents, GP’s, carers as well as families and friends from the community.
A barbecue and entertainment were provided by the Glenn Millar Tribute Band, as well as cake, vintage, book stalls and a tombola all helped to raise the amount.
Corporate and Community Fundraiser from St Luke’s, Mark Porter, said: “We would like to thank everyone at Morris Care for doing a fantastic job at raising such a large amount which will be put towards funding vital residential care for local people.
“As the charity relies heavily on its donation and fundraising effort we are so grateful for this support which enables us to continue our work and help people at such an important and difficult time. The hospice costs £7,500 a day to stay open and helps 3,000 people every year.
“The money raised will help support patient care and maintenance costs throughout the mid and South Cheshire area.”
Morris Care Director, Timothy Morris, said: “We are thrilled to be able to support such a worthy cause particularly as we share the same ethos as St Luke’s, to provide committed, high quality care for those in need, we are looking forward to continuing this partnership working with the hospice in future.”
