Uvedale Hall residential care home in Needham Market is inviting members of the local community to join its residents in a special fundraising fireworks display on Saturday 9th November. The event aims to raise money towards a community defibrillator, which will be situated at the home on Coddenham Road.
The home has already raised £725 through a number of different events and is now hoping to raise at least a further £475 to purchase the lifesaving equipment and have it installed. Once purchased, it will be located in the home’s grounds but will be readily available for any member of the community in need.
The fireworks event will open from 4pm onwards where warming refreshments, including hot dogs, will be served, and a special raffle will be held.
Home Manager Deborah Rich said, “We are really looking forward to welcoming people from Needham Market into our gardens for a family-friendly fireworks display. The team here has already raised a considerable portion of what we need for the defibrillator, and we’re hoping that the fireworks display will help top-up the fund so we can go ahead and purchase the lifesaving device.
“It can be essential in saving the life of someone in cardiac arrest and so we want it to be accessible for our residents and staff, but also for anyone in the local area. I am therefore hopeful that many people will join us for our fireworks display on the 9th November, where we will be extremely grateful for any donations received as part of the raffle.”
Anyone who would like to learn more about the fireworks display, or donate towards the defibrillator can contact the home on 01449 722250, or call in to the home which is based on Coddenham Road.
