February’s Majesticare Grant

At Majesticare, we believe in fostering a culture of support and community empowerment. One of the ways we manifest this ethos is through our Majesticare Grant Scheme, designed to offer assistance to charitable causes and community projects close to the hearts of our team members. Each month, we have the privilege of witnessing the impact of these grants, and in February 2024, our spotlight shone brightly on a project close to home: the Evesham Defibrillators initiative.

The Evesham Defibrillators project is a shining example of community-driven action with a noble mission at its core. The project aims to supply, fit, and maintain defibrillators in the Evesham community. This endeavour not only serves the local populace but also holds potential benefits for the residents and team members of Cavendish Park.

In their application, the Cavendish Park team outlined their plan to install a defibrillator outside their premises. This strategic placement not only enhances the safety of their immediate environment but also extends a lifeline to the broader community. With a total cost of £1200 for the defibrillator and £2622 for maintenance over five years, the team embarked on a fundraising journey, aiming to supplement their efforts with the help of Majesticare Grants.
