November’s Fundraising Star of the Month

Alina says “I work as the Community Hub Support at Brendoncare Otterbourne Hill, and I spend a lot of my time looking after and caring for the people who live there, which really highlights the amazing work we do as a charity. I can see first hand the impact that raising money has.”

Alina, who lives in Southampton, had the idea to ask her son’s school to hold a special dress down in blue day. She says, “I spoke to the Headteacher at Maytree Nursery and Infants School, asking if it’s possible to involve Brendoncare in one of their charity days. I was delighted when they said yes, and raised an incredible £230!”

The support she received from her colleagues and the Fundraising team was a great help, as Alina told us: “I want to say a big thank you for all  the support, and I can say it is a pleasure to work for Brendoncare! I feel proud when you know you give your support to something good for our residents.”

Yasmin Achilles, from Brendoncare’s Fundraising team, said: “We’re so grateful to Alina for persuading her son’s school to get involved and raise such a fantastic amount of money for Brendoncare. Thank you Alina for all you’ve done for us, you really are a star!”
