FORMBY MANOR IN THE PINK WITH £700 CHARITY FUNDRAISER
February 26th, 2020
Employees and residents at the recently opened Formby Manor care centre on Liverpool Road in Formby have raised more than £760 for breast cancer with a special Wear it Pink Day.
The celebratory event saw families and friends of residents dress in pink and come to the home for a special day of fundraising fun with their loved ones that included dressing up, singers, a quiz, raffle and afternoon tea with an assortment of pink cakes and sweets.
Fast becoming the care home of choice in the local area, the expertly designed, purpose-built 76-bed care facility is setting new standards in Merseyside offering high quality, person-focussed care and an exceptional clinical offering that includes residential, nursing and specialist dementia care services.
Ensuring a home-from-home environment for residents, it boasts well-appointed private bedrooms with en suite wet rooms and a host of hotel-style services and communal areas including lounges, dining rooms and club rooms, a fine dining daily menu, hair salon, nail bar and concierge. Residents also benefit from secure landscaped gardens and a busy and varied programme of events.
Already home to a bustling community of new residents, the Wear it Pink day was an opportunity for the home to fundraise for an important cause that many residents and families or friends have been affected by in the past.
Home manager Cheryl Bris commented: “Breast cancer has touched many of our residents and their relatives and fundraising for this important cause is something that we were passionate about and proud to do. We were delighted to welcome so many friends and relatives to the home and see everyone having fun while raising important cash for this very worthy cause. We’re really pleased with how much we’ve raised and look forward to it being used locally in our community to help those who need it.”
