RESIDENTS and staff from Czajka Care Group’s Fairmount Park retirement complex in Nab Wood near Shipley, have raised £870 for Yorkshire Air Ambulance after holding a series of fundraising events in the past month.

Margaret Gledhill, who is part of the Residents’ and Members’ Social Club, organised a ‘nearly new sale’ as well as a race night in The Clubhouse at Fairmount Park. In addition, Jenny Eastham, who is West Yorkshire’s Events and Volunteer Coordinator at Yorkshire Air Ambulance, visited The Clubhouse and held a talk about the organisation’s life-saving work and its plans for the future.

Margaret says: “The sale and race night were both really popular and a credit to everyone who worked hard to make them such a success. The talk by the Yorkshire Air Ambulance was very interesting and a lot of our attendees were pleased to find out how the money raised would be put to good use.”

Konrad Czajka, Managing Director of Czajka Care Group, says: “The Clubhouse at Fairmount Park has a fantastic social committee that continually lends its support to a whole range of deserving organisations and charities. Yorkshire Air Ambulance does an amazing job and changes peoples’ lives every day, so it’s a superb charity to raise a great sum of money for.”

Jenny Eastham says: “We have to raise £3.6million every year to maintain and operate our two helicopters that serve a population of 5 million people and we rely completely on the generosity of individuals and organisations for this. We have a strong relationship with both Czajka Care Group and its residents and we’re very grateful when Margaret organises fundraising events on our behalf, which are always extremely successful.”

Czajka Care Group runs five nursing and residential care homes and also provides home and domiciliary care to people across Yorkshire via its Czajka Community Care division
