Recently staff suggested that we have a year of fund raising for St Barnabas House, which I wholeheartedly support. Since we are currently part of the Gold Standards Framework and are working with staff, residents and their families and GP’s to ensure that end of life care at Valerie Manor is of a very high standard, we thought that this would be a great way of thanking St Barnabas for their support that they give to everyone here at Valerie Manor, as well as the help they give to others.
Care assistants Collette and Sarah started the idea as they wanted to take part in this year’s Night to Remember half marathon midnight walk along Worthing seafront and were keen to do this while representing Valerie Manor. We were all 100% behind the idea and this has now paved the way for future events throughout the year and into 2013. The list of events that we currently have planned are as follows;
Night to Remember Midnight Walk
Saturday 16th June 2012
Care assistants Collette and Sarah join around 1,000 other fabulous women walkers to take part in the 5th year of this fantastic event.
Go Green Tea Party
Friday 12th October 2012
This was a popular event a couple of years ago at Valerie Manor. Join us for an afternoon of fun, food and entertainment where the staff will be dressed in green for the day!
Sunday 14th April 2013
Registered Nurse Linda Norman and Office Manager Alan Fry have bravely put themselves forward for next year’s Brighton marathon. Good luck to both of you! ……..I wonder who will get the fastest time?!
We hope to add more events over time so please check back regularly for updates and news.
I think it’s fantastic that we have staff with such big hearts and are so dedicated to what they do and what they believe in. I’m very proud of them all.
