Crossroads Care Wokingham was delighted to be invited to Nouveau Solutions Open Day on 27 November 2015.
We are also very grateful to be chosen as the beneficiary of the Grimm Challenge participated by Nouveau Solutions staff. The event will be held in February 2016. The money raised will help us to support more unpaid carers within the Borough of Wokingham by offering them precious respite breaks.
Our sincere thanks go to the Goodwill Committee of Airinmar Ltd who has raised an amazing amount of £1622 over the last few months. The fund is to offer carers of people with dementia an extended break to reduce their stresses and have some ’Me Time’ to be away from their caring roles.
The Cheque was presented to Catherina Tam, CEO of Crossroads Care Wokingham, on 8 June 2016 by Jonathan Last, Chair of the Goodwill Committee, Airinmar Ltd.
Marks & Spencer Wokingham
Our sincere thanks go to Marks & Spencer Wokingham for choosing us as its Charity of the Year 2015/16 from which we received £1,600.30 in May 2016 and subsequently £990.93 in August 2016. The funding is used for our special project to support carers of people with life limiting illnesses. Our internal statistic shows that 34% of our carers care for a love one with life limiting illnesses. This has severe impact on their well – being both physically and emotionally. With the funding we are able to give them some precious time to themselves and to reduce their stresses.
We are most grateful to Herrington Carmichael solicitors for their generous charitable giving of £2,500 received in September 2016. The funding will allow us to provide 125 respite hours to support those carers who care for their loved ones with life limiting illnesses, giving them the most precious breaks during their difficult times.
