We are thrilled to award April’s ‘Fundraising Star of the Month’ to passionate care assistant, Claire Emery, who works at Brendoncare Knightwood and recently set herself the challenge of doing a sponsored silence during a shift.
Claire communicated by using a note pad and sign language, using her colleagues as interpreters! Staff and residents were all aware of her challenge and thought it was great fun supporting her throughout the day. One resident, in particular, enjoyed reminding everyone not to talk to her at Brendoncare Knightwood.
“I love my job because it is challenging and yet so rewarding. My favourite part of the job is making the residents happy and seeing them smile. I see them as family. I also bring my friend’s horse, Barney, to visit the residents at Knightwood – he is so gentle with them and, of course, loves all the attention!Thanks to my work colleagues, residents and families who supported me through my sponsored silence. I raised £90 for Brendoncare Knightwood to treat the residents with aromatherapy.”
Congratulations Claire for being this month’s ‘Fundraising Star of the Month’ and, on behalf of everyone at Brendoncare, thank you so much for everything you do to support us. We couldn’t do it without you!
