Redditch and Bromsgrove Home Instead care team dig deep for Marie Curie daffodil appeal

Bromsgrove Editorial 7th Jun, 2021

THE team at care company Home Instead Redditch and Bromsgrove are celebrating after raising £170 for Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal.

Back in March, Home Instead’s Kerry Williams set out to raise £100 for the charity.

Marie Curie, which helps people living with terminal illnesses, is close to the heart of Kerry, company owner Annie, and everyone at Home Instead as they lost one of their own team members to cancer.

Kerry organised a host of virtual events, including a virtual pub quiz and a virtual bingo night.

“The events were great fun. Our team of caregivers rallied around, supporting the events and also generously donating to the cause,” said Kerry.

The events were such a great hit they smashed the £100 barrier and brought in 170 just from team members alone.

“We were so pleased to raise such an amazing amount of money for such a wonderful cause,” said Kerry.

“Annie and I have both lost close friends to terminal cancer, and to lose one of our own team to cancer last year was so heart-breaking. “The charity did amazing work to support them throughout the end of their lives, and we really wanted to give back however we could.”

Annie Dixon-Dunn, owner of Home Instead Redditch and Bromsgrove added: “The fundraising was a great way for our caregivers to have a bit of fun whilst simultaneously raising money for a great cause.

“We care for elderly and vulnerable people throughout the local community, and we see first-hand the wonderful things these charities do for people throughout their final weeks. They are truly invaluable, and we have loved fundraising to support them.”
