Windsor House Care Home in Standish earned £360 for Good Deed Trust, a local charity that helps people with cancer.
Windsor House, a member of the Millennium Care Group, held its annual holiday market to benefit a local charity.
The money raised was matched by the care provider and added to Windsor's Residents' Fund, which is used for fun, games, and activities.
The Good Deeds Trust is a tiny volunteer-run organization that conducts the Dementia Buddy project, which helps persons living with dementia and Alzheimer's in the community.
The organization has partnered with the Alzheimer's Society to provide several Dementia Cafes in libraries and other venues throughout the borough.
Stalls, a tombola, entertainment, games, food and drinks, and a raffle were all part of the winter fair.
The home had an impressive prize table thanks to generous donations from family, friends, and local companies such as The Boars Head in Standish, Worden Park Mini Golf, and Wigan Athletic.
"We're a small home with a big heart!" stated Ewan Macdonald, home manager at Windsor House. We enjoy holding events, but it's even better when we can help our community. Dementia Buddies does incredible work, and it is an honor to raise funds for them.
"I'd like to personally thank everyone who helped make our Winter Fair a success, as well as Dementia Buddy for all they do!"
"Our Dementia Buddy program that we launched assists local people with Dementia to live their lives," stated Mark Aldred of Goods Deeds Trust. We are a small local charity run entirely by volunteers with big hearts.
"Thanks to Millennium Care, their employees, and their residents, we can now protect another 72 local persons with dementia with our Dementia Buddy devices."
