"Greenfest was fantastic! We had a great day with a brilliant turn out from the local community."
Lauri Smith, manager of Greenfields
Greenfields Residential Care Home in Coddington held Greenfest last month, to raise funds for El Shaddai Charitable Trust, which provides support to thousands of children living on the streets of India.
The specialist care home for adults with learning difficulties and autism threw open its doors to welcome the community to its inaugural, annual fundraising festival. The event included fun activities for all the family, with a range of hot food, ice creams, games, music, bouncy castles and much more.
Lauri Smith, manager of Greenfields, said: “As a service, we want to be able to give back, and we can do this with involvement from our local community. I have personal experience of working with El Shaddai Charitable Trust and the incredible work they do in Goa.
“Greenfest was fantastic! We had a great day with a brilliant turn out from the local community.
“We also raised £410 for the charity and we cannot wait to do this again, it’s been a brilliant opportunity and the feedback from families was amazing.”
El Shaddai Charitable Trust is as UK-based charity, which supports the running of orphanages and children’s homes in Goa, providing a comfortable, residential environment for children who would otherwise be living on the streets.
Martyn Heginbotham, managing director (south) of Pathways Care Group, part of Salutem Healthcare, said: “Greenfest was a fantastic event, for a great cause.
“At Salutem Healthcare, we’re committed, not just to providing high quality care, but to running facilities which are integral to the local community.”
