Our mascot teddy ‘Slippers’ had a great time at the Bike Meet on Saturday 8th June, despite the rain our Finance Assistant Millie and her family did such a great job, raising even more money to be split between Holbeach Hospital and Macmillan Cancer Support. The cakes were delicious too 😋. Thank you to everyone who came along.
Very excited to be able to finally unveil our amazing flower display for the Holbeach All Saints Church Flower Festival. Lots of hard work has gone into creating this display from our residents and Jackie and Maggie. We hope you enjoy seeing it if you are popping down to the Church this weekend. It's our first attempt at a flower display so let us know what you think.
Some brilliant and exciting news from Lincolnshire Coop; we will be one of the Community Champions for the Holbeach area from 8th September to 30th November 2019 and the donations raised will be going to the hobbies lounge. Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for us. We want our residents to have active and fulfilling lives, so the creation of a hobbies lounge will enable us to engage our residents with even more activities and allow them to carry on any hobbies they had before they came to stay with us. The hobbies lounge will also be the hub of any intergenerational activities.
Money raised for each quarters will come from multiple sources such as:
We would like to say a big thank you to the wonderful Moulton Ladies Group, who very kindly presented us with a cheque for £100. The Ladies Group also made donations to six other charities at a special presentation evening. The seven charities included Abbeygate Care Home, Moulton Community Centre, Holbeach and East Elloe Hospital Trust, Mia Clucas Charity, The Moulton Mill, St Barnabas Hospice and Tonic Health. Each charity gave a presentation on their charity before being presented with a £100 donation.
We would like to thank Moulton Ladies Group and everyone who was involved in their fundraising efforts; it is very much appreciated and the donation will be put towards creating a new Hobby Lounge for our residents.
In May of this year Holbeach resident Kev Howard will be doing a mammoth ride on his 1250 Suzuki motorbike from John O' Groats to Lands' End, in just one day. For him, it's a personal goal but he is also hoping to raise a few pennies for two charities; Holbeach and East Elloe Hospital Trust and Macmillan Cancer Support. The journey itself will be over 800 miles. He is pictured here with Hospital Manager Maxine Winch and Deputy Manager, Lesly Pointer who wanted to show their support for his fundraising efforts. Our hospital residents will also be doing some motor-bike themed activities in the run up to his ride. If anyone wants to donate to support Kev, they can do so on the gofundme website https://www.gofundme.com and search ‘JOGLE In A day’ or click the link below:
Kev commented “This is something that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. Previously I have made the journey camping along the way but I thought I would set myself the challenge to do it in just one day. It was my daughter who suggested raising money for charity at the same time. Through my own experiences I know the good work that both charities do.”
Mr Turner of Holbeach visited us yesterday to present a cheque for a fantastic £950 to go to our Residents’ Fund. Every year Mr Turner puts on the most spectacular Christmas light display outside his house, which is well known with people coming from near and far to see them. Thank you to Mr Turner for once again supporting our hospital and for everyone who so generously donated money. Our residents will benefit greatly from the donation which will pay for trips out and activities for them to enjoy
Residents, their families and staff were treated to an afternoon of musical talent from local artist Travis Graham. Travis sang a variety of songs and handed out Valentine’s hearts to residents. The entertainment was paid for by a generous donation from a family.
The gardens and patio area at the rear of Holbeach Hospital are in great need of redevelopment and as part of our 30th year anniversary celebrations this year we would like to upgrade this area to include raised beds and a raised pond to make it easier for wheelchair bound residents to enjoy the plants and do a little gardening. We think this is especially important for our end of life residents to be able to spend some time outside and make their last days special. We already have some funds available but still need to raise additional funds to cover the total costs of the project. If anyone or any business is able to donate there are various ways – send a cheque addressed to “Holbeach and East Elloe Hospital Trust” please send with a letter or card stating it is for the Garden Renovation Appeal, or by popping to reception and we will be happy to take any cash, card or cheque donations, or you can call 01406 422283 Mon-Fri 9-3pm and we can take card payments over the telephone (again please state the donation is for the Garden Appeal). Many thanks for considering our appeal and thank you to those who have already donated.
