Match Funding Means So Much To Team Fundraiser

Thanks to Care Tech plc staff and the CareTech Foundation The Mallards care home has donated a total of £1290 to the King’s Lynn Tapping House Hospice in Norfolk.

In what was a team effort, staff and service users from The Mallards raised funds during their annual fundraising raffle, raising £645 for the charity. As part of CareTech plc’s commitment to supporting its staff, Courtney Blyth, Support Worker for the care home, was able to apply for Match Funding from the CareTech Foundation bringing the total raised to a very welcome £1290.

Courtney Blyth, Support Worker at The Mallards says: “Through joint efforts between staff and service users we were able to raise £645. With thanks to the CareTech Foundation we were able to build on this and present to Tapping House a very significant donation, which we are all very proud to deliver.

“It means a lot to support The Norfolk Tapping House Hospice, Many of us have first hand experience of the good work they do supporting people and families through really tough times. We know this donation will help the Hospice continue its good work supporting and caring for people with life-shortening illnesses.”

CareTech Foundation CEO, Jonathan Freeman MBE, says: “We are always happy to support our employees in their good work supporting their local communities. The Norfolk Tapping House Hospice is a very worthy cause, we are very pleased to be able to make a contribution and help the Hospice continue to deliver its much relied upon service and care.”

The Norfolk Tapping House Hospice offers support, care and advice to patients over the age of 18, their carers and families through all stages of their illness. Hospice care is not just for people with cancer; they also support people with a range of illnesses such as Dementia, Parkinson’s, Motor Neurone Disease (MND), heart failure, kidney failure and Huntington’s disease.
