March news from Campden Home Nursing

Here’s the latest news from Campden Home Nursing…

Thank you!

A huge thank you to everyone who donated items for our Big Easter Raffle. There were some fabulous prizes, including cream tea packages, made and delivered by our staff (special thanks to Anna Bennett and Ali Robinson), a hamper filled with Easter eggs and chocolate goodies, kindly donated by India Middleton from the Evesham Neighbourhood team. Also, two complete Sunday lunches for four, donated by Vegetable Matters Farm Shop and Café and Fresh Meat Matters Butcher’s Shop, Chipping Campden, and Easter eggs, donated by our very own One Stop. Thank you so much everyone for your generosity.

Winners will be announced in the next Campden Bulletin.

All proceeds will go directly to helping us to continue to provide our nursing services free of charge to those living with a life limiting illness, and holistic support to their families.

Walk the Cotswold Way, Virtually, for Campden Home Nursing

Walk The Cotswold Way (virtually) for Campden Home NursingThe one thing we can all do at the moment is walk, so if you want to get fit, start clocking your miles and walk The Cotswold Way with us (virtually).

The distance is 102 miles and speed doesn’t matter – it’s just about completing the miles. And you can do it as a team or a family and combine your miles to complete the challenge. The emphasis is on having fun, walking and getting fitter and raising money for Campden Home Nursing.

When you sign up, you can create a fundraising page where people can sponsor you. You’ll be able to upload your Strava maps on your fundraising page to show your progress, as well as photos of the walks you complete.

We are charging a minimum admin sign-up fee of £5 for an individual, £10 for a family (a minimum of 1 adult and any number of children) and £15 for a team (a minimum of 3 people). We would love it if you could get some sponsorship for your efforts.

Everyone who completes the walk will receive a medal! We are also planning a garden party in July when all participants can enjoy a bar-b-que in the gardens of Jecca’s House and entrants will be awarded with their medals*.

A team of 10 nurses and admin have teamed together to walk the length of the Cotswold WayA team of ten nurses and admin staff have joined together to walk the length of the Cotswold Way (164km x 10 which is a total of 1,642km), virtually! We can’t walk together, but many of us have been out and about our bubble or our four legged friends, logging our steps. At this rate, we’ll be walking The Cotswold Way and back!

Jecca’s House – latest news update

Jecca’s House continues to take shape. As part of our ongoing drive to create a welcoming and safe environment for our patients when the time comes, our car park is being expanded in line with local planning guidelines. We apologise for any disruption or noise this has caused for our neighbours, or visitors.

Many thanks to Stuart Smith, Nathan and the team at Stuart Smith Landscapes for doing a fantastic job with the car park. The work is nearing completion, and we will soon have capacity for 15 extra cars.
