PRLog - Nov. 9, 2010 - COLCHESTER, U.K. -- The Gables, in Gorleston, is backing the soldiers’ charity through the sale of items made by various residents, who include 81-year-old Betty Svassand.  In addition, the home, which is run by leading East Anglian independent care provider Healthcare Homes, is joining forces with the neighbouring St Edmunds and Clarence House homes to hold a large raffle to increase the fundraising total.

Regional Activities Coordinator, Sue Campbell-Bannerman, said residents had thoroughly enjoyed making the handicrafts and selling raffle tickets.  

She added: “Help for Heroes is a charity that’s close to many of their hearts. They know first-hand what war is like, having lived through World War Two.  So they know how brave our servicemen and women are, fighting in places like Afghanistan.”

Sue added: “Projects like these are invaluable as they get our residents involved in the local community and life outside the home.”

Healthcare Homes Chief Executive, Richard Clough, said the company was pleased to support Help for Heroes through The Gables. “It’s an extremely worthwhile charity that does great work for injured servicemen and women,” he said. “We are proud that we are able to help through the raffle and sale of the residents’ handiwork.”

The Gables has a rating of ‘Good’ from the Care Quality Commission.  
Healthcare Homes has a further 22 homes under its management as well as the Manorcourt Homecare division and daycare centres.
