New year news from Campden Home Nursing

Read the latest news about our hospice at home nursing service, as well as the new Cancer Support Service and Living Well Centre.

As we write, we are amid a third national lockdown, and sadly our shop, like many others in the High Street, remains closed. We hope to open as soon as it is safe to do so. Our nursing services are operating as normal, and we would like to stress that we are still here for those who need us. Our entire nursing team has now been vaccinated and we are as busy as ever.

Our thanks to…

We are so grateful for the continued support of our lovely community. Our thanks to Polly Johnson and her sister, Helly, who put together some beautiful care packages for our nurses, having held a Christmas appeal. Many thanks too, to Dave Lewis and Gordon Gerry at The Red Lion Tavern, who raised £60 for Campden Home Nursing via Christmas lunch donations, and Budget Skip Hire & Waste Management for their donation of £153 from their Christmas raffle. The Volunteer also donated £20 in their Christmas raffle and we are also very grateful to our superstar knitter, Carol Keen, who created gorgeous Christmas decorations all year and raised almost £300 for Campden Home Nursing.

We are very busy adapting Jecca’s House into our headquarters and a home for our new Living Well Centre. The rooms are taking shape and we’re delighted that our new Centre Support Manager, Ali Robinson has now joined us. Also new to the team is Finance Assistant, Anna Bennett.  Anna, who is an ex-Chipping Campden School pupil, has a background in accounts and ran a tearoom with her mum, called Lucy’s, in Stow in the Wold for seven years. Anna, who is mum to twins, said: “I’m really enjoying working at Campden Home Nursing already and can’t wait to get going with organising fundraising and events when we are able!” We can’t wait to taste some of her delicious cakes!
