Care home raises funds through spring sale

Care home raises funds through spring sale
11th March 2008

The Westwood House care home in Sydenham has raised more than £160 for its residents' fund, through a spring sale.

Staff and residents sold the pictures, paintings and mirrors left over from a recent refurbishment, over the two-day event.

The upper floor of the care home was transformed into a picture gallery for the sale, while posters and a huge banner attracted potential buyers.

Visitors included pupils from a local school, an antiques dealer from Greenwich and a number of residents' relatives – many of whom managed to bag themselves a bargain or two.

Caron Sanders-Crook, manager of Westwood House, said: "This spring sale was a great initiative to recycle some of our old goods and put the money raised back into our home.

"It was also a fantastic way to raise local awareness and encourage people to visit us who may not have previously had reason to."

The sale followed a new years revamp for the care home.

Residents were invited to contribute to the redecoration by choosing the new carpets, furnishings and fittings for their home.
