HOMECARE PROVIDERS RAISE FUNDS FOR HOSPICE WITH SCARECROW CREATIONS

Bluebird Care St Helens and Bluebird Care Warrington’s Deputy Manager, Clare Toole, and her daughters Lacie and Lyla, made Meredith the scarecrow, especially for the festival.

Two branches of homecare provider Bluebird Care have raised over £100 for a good cause by entering a scarecrow festival.

Bluebird Care St Helens and Bluebird Care Warrington took part in the St Helens community scarecrow festival, which took place between 26th October to 1st November, to help raise vital donations for Willowbrook Hospice.

Willowbrook is a local hospice that cares for people with life limiting or terminal illnesses. It is a charity that helps both patients and their family members during the most difficult of circumstances.

Willowbrook does not charge for their services but rely on fundraising efforts and a modest contribution from the NHS. This enables them to provide support to patients and their families according to their individual needs.

Bluebird Care St Helens and Bluebird Care Warrington’s Deputy Manager, Clare Toole, and her daughters Lacie and Lyla, made Meredith the scarecrow, especially for the festival. They have so far raised over £100 and Bluebird Care will be matching all donations pound for pound via the official JustGiving site: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ecclestonscarecrow?utm_source=facebook

Clare Toole, Deputy Manager at Bluebird Care St Helens and Bluebird Care Warrington, said: “We were so thrilled to be involved and my daughters had such a great time making Meredith the Bluebird Care Care Assistant.

“The hospice is very close to all our hearts, not only because their nurses support our palliative (end-of-life) customers, but also because some of our team members also have personal experiences working with the hospice. The work they do is exceptional, and it is a huge part of the community. The team want to raise as much as they can to ensure the hospice continues to run during this epidemic, so they can help many, many more families. Thank you to all that have donated so far.”
