The Care Workers Charity has been awarded a £500 cheque from Hereford care home, Brockington House.
Brockington House acquired the cheque as part of their reward for being nominated as finalists for the 2020 Pinders Healthcare Design Award. Each finalist has an equal sum of money to donate to the charity of their choice.
The luxury care home chose to donate theirs to the Care Workers Charity, an organisation which offers financial support to care workers, as CEO of Dormy Care Communities and Brockington House, Helen Davies-Parsons explains:
“We felt very strongly about donating the money to an organisation which cares for and supports those who dedicate their lives to looking after others.
“As a registered nurse with over 27 years’ experience in the care sector, I know the hours and the effort that goes into supporting people who need care. We rely on these selfless and dedicated people, which is why we are incredibly proud to give something back to them and award them with this cheque”.
Ben Allen, who is Chairman of the Care Workers Charity and Chief executive of Oomph, came to Brockington House to receive the cheque.
Speaking about the difference the donation will make to the charity, Ben said:
“We are very grateful to Brockington House Care Home in Hereford for thinking of us and donating five hundred pounds to the Care Workers’ Charity.
“This amazing amount of money will make such a difference to a care worker in need through a crisis grant or a one-off essential needs grant. Thank you so much for helping us help those in need, it is very much appreciated.”
