Belvedere Christmas

Residents, staff and relatives at care home MHA Belvedere Manor on Gibfield Road in Colne have been busy collecting gifts and toys as part of Good Deed-cember.

Good Deed-cember is a scheme run by MHA, an award-winning charity providing care, accommodation and support services for older people throughout Britain. The scheme offers a lifeline from social isolation and encourages staff and residents to do a good deed during the run up to Christmas.

To support the scheme, residents at MHA’s Belvedere Manor chose how they would like to participate. During a meeting, residents voted on which worthy cause they would like to support during the festive season. All donations collected have gone to a women’s refuge to help women and families through what can be a difficult time for many.

To add some festive cheer, residents delivered the donations in the home’s minibus, which was decorated to look festive. Belvedere Manor has also sponsored a Christmas tree for St John's Church in Colne as part of the tree festival in the area. Residents decorated it and give it to a family who needed support this Christmas.

Tony Grundy, volunteer coordinator at MHA’s Belvedere Manor, said: “It’s lovely to see so many of our residents rallying round and thinking of others this Christmas; it’s a time that can be extremely difficult for many. Please follow their example and support our Good Deed-cember campaign so we can make sure that no-one feels alone at this time of year: www.gooddeedcember.org.uk

The former Silk care home is now under the management of national charity MHA, which has almost 75 years’ experience providing accommodation and support for older people. Belvedere celebrated becoming a part of the MHA family with a relaunch party in August.
