A couple of months ago Fosse Healthcare challenged its six branch locations to a festive competition, encouraging them to don their ugliest Christmas jumpers in aid of local causes, with a £100 donation up-for-grabs for the winning chosen charity.
Christmas period being a busy time for our Home Care and Healthcare teams it
was a tough job for all and unfortunately this meant we had a couple of
branches who couldn’t get involved as much as they would have liked.
However, those who did take part managed to raise almost £500 for causes including Doorways Derby, Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance, St Luke’s Hospice and St Barnabas.
So, who won the competition?
We saw a number of whacky jumpers and fundraising Christmas parties over November and December, but none were more deserving of the prize than Grantham.
Not only did they arrange and host a brilliant raffle and Christmas party, but our Grantham Extra Care team at Brick Kiln Place held an ugly jumper-themed fundraising day for staff and residents, which alone raised an incredible £180.
We have chosen to award Fosse Grantham the winning £100 donation to their chosen charity, St Barnabas, which puts their total overall donation at £310 – beating their £300 target!
What a fantastic achievement from all who took part in the competition. Thank you so much for your efforts; we look forward to seeing what this year brings.
