Cocktails and Canapes at Sherrell House

It was cocktails and canapes at Sherrell House. The Care Home based in Chigwell opened its doors to the community with a themed casino event.

Resident Maureen stated “the afternoon has been brilliant I would love to do this every week as I have wone on the croupier table”.

The event was arranged by activities co-ordinators Prabjot and Errol who stated they wanted to challenge peoples perceptions of a care home and do something completely different. Prabjot said we have some fantastic residents and some worked in casinos when they were younger so we though to run a afternoon with that as the theme and it was great chance for people to get dressed up.

Christmas Fundraising

For most of us, Christmas is a precious time spent with our family and loved ones, but for thousands this is not the case. Some are homeless, sleeping outside, cold and hungry; others are lonely with no family or friends.

There are also thousands of people, many of whom are children, battling illness or disease, not knowing if this could be their last Christmas.

Christmas is the season of giving, which is why every year, the Deputy CEO of Excelcare Sam Manning, calls on all her colleagues at their head office in Bromley to raise money for others.

The month of December they have raised an overall total of £880.00 for various charities such as Make a Wish Foundation, Crisis.

They are also continuing to collect for their colleague’s Granddaughter who at 18-months has been diagnosed with Cancer; so Excelcare are on a mission to send lots of presents to her for Christmas!

The team at Excelcare said ‘Helping one person might not change the world, but it could change the world for one person’.
