Colleagues from five Anchor care homes have joined forces with the Military Wives to raise more than £1,700 for Help The Heroes charity this spring.
Customers and care colleagues from St Anne’s in Saltash, Selkirk House in Plymstock, Manor Court in Efford, Kimberly Court in Newquay and Woodland Grove in Bath worked together on a massive fundraising concert held at The New Continental hotel in Plymouth to help injured members of Britain’s armed forces.
The Military Wives were the top billing at the event attended by 170 people. Soloist and Chichester University student Briony, who is the daughter of Woodland Grove's Business Manager Natalie Hodgson, also performed to the enthusiastic audience.
St Anne’s Care Manager Halina Morton, one of the organisers, said: “Many of the older people living in our care homes fought and lived through the Second World War so we know what a brave contribution the armed forces have made and continue to make towards the freedom of this country.
“The evening was brilliant fun and we are all so pleased how much money was raised for such a worthwhile cause.
“I would like to thank The New Continental, The Military Wives, Briony and all my Anchor colleagues who worked so hard to make the evening such a great success.”
A massive well done to everyone involved in this event!
