Last year saw Homelands successfully raise enough money to purchase a second shower trolley and electric mobile hoist for our lodges. This allowed many more guests to benefit from this specialist equipment.
The aim for 2017 is to fundraise and purchase an Invacare Active 2 airflow mattress for each of our smaller lodges which do not currently have one and also to purchase a second mattress of this type for our Drummochy Lodge.
We would like our guests who require the use of an airflow mattress during their stay to have the option of staying in any of our lodges so will do our best to make this a reality.
Fundraising is starting off with Nicola Drummond, a member of our housekeeping team, taking part in the Edinburgh half marathon on Sunday 28th of May. Kim O'Brien (Assistant Manager) and Martina Schmidt (Admin Assistant) along with friends will then complete a 10 mile walk along the Fife Coastal Path on Sunday 30th of July. Later in the year we have Becca Stewart running on our behalf in the Great North Run and then hope to hold another successful coffee morning in our Paxton Centre.
