On Wednesday 18th April Lashbrook House Care Centre in Shiplake owned by Majesticare hosted an afternoon in aid of Parkinson’s Awareness. The Event was organised to coincide with Parkinson’s awareness week which ran from April 15th – 22nd 2012.
Lashbrook House have been hosting regular coffee mornings in aid of one of their chosen charities Parkinson’s UK. These events have been well attended by residents of the home and local people, including the Stroke Club and Blue Bell’s. The event on April 18th was attended by Nick Posford the regional fundraiser and representative of the organisation, who was presented with a cheque for £201.00 which had been raised through raffle’s, events and a sponsored walk completed by Lashbrook residents from the care home to the Baskerville pub.
Lesley Mather (Social Care Manager – Majesticare) is looking forward to supporting Nick Posford with future fundraising events and is looking forward to meeting the new Parkinson’s representatives Helen Old who will be based in Henley on Thames. She went on to say that Lashbrook House have residents with Parkinson’s who are cared for at the home so it would be really nice to meet with Helen Old and support the new branch in any way we can.
Lesley expressed Majesticare’s wishes to support local groups with fundraising when possible and in doing so forge links with the community and its service users.
