Carers support community with donations

Amid the season of goodwill, homecare business Walfinch Mansfield has been making special deliveries and donations, which includes supporting the John Eastwood Hospice’s Christmas Fayre, and gifting warm blankets to every client the care team supports across the local community.

The team, led by managing director Tiffany Meachim, has selected the Hospice in Sutton-in-Ashfield as its nominated 2022 and 2023 charity and donated 70 chocolate selection boxes to be given as gifts to residents on Christmas Day. A snowy scene and festive fireplace scene were also sourced to include in the hospice’s Santa’s Grotto display, plus the sale of raffle tickets has raised £130.

In addition, carers have hand-delivered the gift of warm blankets and a Christmas poem to every client. 

Explains Tiffany: “Christmas is a time for giving and we are proud to support the John Eastwood Hospice wherever we can with donations, volunteering and support.  The Christmas Fayre was a great success and we supported the event all day, and look forward to continuing to support the Hospice with a variety of fundraising initiatives in 2023.

“We also recognise the impact the cost of living crisis is having; it is greatly affecting many of our vulnerable clients and so we have donated warming blankets to every client as a gift, each with an accompanying festive poem. It’s been really lovely to share our time, donations and gifts far and wide, and we extend our sincere festive wishes to all clients and the wider community.” 

The John Eastwood Hospice Trust supports NHS partners with the delivery of specialist palliative care services both in the John Eastwood Hospice and in the community.  For more details regarding the John Eastwood Hospice, visit: www.johneastwoodhospice.org.uk.
