Czajka Care Group’s Fairmount Nursing Home, Brookfield Care Home and Staveley Birkleas Nursing Home, which are all in Nab Wood near Shipley, held three summer fairs raising £720 for the Resident’s Fund – a fund for residents that has previously been used to buy everything from karaoke machines to Nintendo Wii’s.
Czajka Care Group’s Beanlands Nursing Home, which is located in Cross Hills, hosted a summer BBQ on Yorkshire Day raising £800 and Currergate Nursing Home, which is located in Steeton, raised £600 from its summer fete for their Residents Funds.
All of the events included a wide range of events including a raffle, tombola, cake stall, treasure hunt for children and a number of other stalls. Refreshments were also served throughout.
Konrad Czajka, Managing Director of Czajka Care Group, says: “It’s staggering how much time and effort went into our annual summer fetes and BBQ’s, and to raise so much money is the icing on the cake. We always open our doors to the families and friends of our residents and also invite people in the local community to these fun-filled parties, and it’s a delight to see how popular they are.”
In addition to the money raised for the Residents Funds, Czajka Care Group’s Area Catering Supervisor also raised £114 for McMillian Cancer Support when he hosted a pizza and BBQ open afternoon at his home in July 2015. Konrad Czajka’s wife Jasia and granddaughter Kallie then raised a further £100 for Cancer Research UK by taking part in Bradford’s 5k Race for Life.
Konrad adds: “Despite mixed weather conditions the turn-out for these parties across all of our homes was fantastic. They show just how much our staff, residents and their family and friends enjoy spending time together working towards a common goal. The fundraising efforts of everyone for both the Residents Funds and the Cancer charities is incredibly worthwhile and we like nothing more than to support and reward everyone involved by supporting these sterling fundraising efforts.”
