Representatives from The Friends of The Beacon - Sharon Cantwell, Lisa Traquair and Shirley Kimpson - accepted a cheque for £1000 from the Social Strollers at the Linden Homes Club last week.
The money had been raised by the strolling group taking on a sponsored walk around the Lincolnshire Wolds and was in memory of the founder of the group, who had been a resident at The Beacon a number of times.
Views of current residents, families and staff at The Beacon will now be sought on what the money should be spent on – with the Group feeling delighted with such a large donation.
The Friends of The Beacon – Jean Smith, Lisa Traquair, Sharon Cantwell, Shirley Kimpson and Jean Harris – who all work at The Beacon, fundraise to pay for activities and enhance the experience of service users. In the past the group has funded entertainment such as singers for the service users and earlier this year transformed a run-down Courtyard area at The Beacon into a beautiful outdoor seating area with a gazebo, benches, hanging baskets and flowers.
