SUMMER PARTY ENJOYED BY ALL

 CaddingtonCare held their annual Summer Party at Heathfield on Aug 21st. After a two year break, close on 100 local residents once again enjoyed an afternoon of fun and entertainment with party games, a raucous sing-a-long and afternoon tea.

Dave Soper revived an old Stanley  Holloway monologue, CaddingtonCare produced an enthusiastic choir, Dave  Isger created a film quiz and Fred Thomas  provided the music.

A very successful raffle was called by Bob Fitzsimmons and an army of  CaddingtonCare helpers served the large  afternoon tea to everyone’s delight.

We can help outside the home with

Transport to hospital, clinic, doctors and dentists.

If you are having trouble getting there, make your journey less stressful by letting us help. (If possible try to give us at least 24hrs notice).

Shopping, small  errands. Collecting pensions or  prescriptions. Occasional lifts to day centres, luncheon clubs etc. (if your  regular transport is not available).

 

We can help at home with

Important letters or difficult to write forms.

Occasional cleaning, small gardening jobs, household repairs. (Short-term help if you are unable to do it yourself).

Visiting or befriending when your loved one is in hospital or away. Or, maybe, just a cup of tea and a chat.

 

What will it cost?

Just the expenses incurred by the volunteer e.g. petrol and any item you ask us to buy for you.

Donations will always be gratefully received.
