Alexandra Grange presents community awards to local church group and homeless charity
Our care home on Molly Millars Lane has presented a community partner award to Churches Together Wokingham and Wokingham in Need.
A certificate and badge were recently given to the local Church group and homeless charity from our residential and dementia home as a thank you after they made blankets, cardigans and scarfs for residents, sent letters and provided online church services and socially distanced services.
The awards were given as part of the Hallmark Care Home’s Lifestyle and Tree of Life Strategy which encourages care homes including Alexandra Grange to work with community groups closely for the benefit of residents and recognise those who have supported them within the local area.
Lifestyle’s Leader at Alexandra Grange Care Home, Katriona Beeton said: “We recently celebrated two amazing community partners! A certificate and tree of life badge was given to the group Churches Together Wokingham and Wokingham in Need. They have been so wonderful during the pandemic sending letters to residents, providing online church services and socially distanced services when allowed as well as donating incredible gifts bags to the team and supporting the home in any way they can! Meanwhile, Sandra Jackson who runs Wokingham in Need has been amazing making blankets, and scarves. They always think of us as well as so many other homes and hospitals in the area.”
A representative from Churches Together Wokingham said: “We are honoured and humbled by this award and were delighted to accept.”
