Care home wins at bingo night

Strathearn Herald - - CLUB NEWS -

A Strath com­mu­nity clubbed to­gether to raise funds for a Cri­eff care home re­cently.

Vol­un­teers at the Royal Bri­tish Le­gion in Cri­eff raised £900 for The Birches care home by host­ing a bingo night and a high tea.

The cash raised for the Cri­eff home will go to­wards ac­tiv­i­ties for the res­i­dents and a fund for those who need ex­tra help buy­ing clothes and other es­sen­tials.

Care home man­ager Robert Ainslie said: “We are hugely grate­ful to the Royal Bri­tish Le­gion and all of our kind-hearted neigh­bours for donat­ing to our res­i­dents’ comfort fund.

“We have our own minibus at The Birches and are al­ways plan­ning ac­tiv­i­ties out in the com­mu­nity so that res­i­dents can take full ad­van­tage of lo­cal life and meet new peo­ple.

“The money raised will give them the op­por­tu­nity to dis­cover new places and make mem­o­ries with friends.”

The care home, which of­fers long and short-term res­i­den­tial and de­men­tia care, hope the Le­gion mem­bers’do­na­tion will help to en­cour­age res­i­dents to con­tinue tak­ing part in their favourite hob­bies and pas­times.
