Volunteer at MHA Belvedere Manor donates sound system for residents to use in activities

24 October 2023

A volunteer at MHA Belvedere Manor has donated a sound system to the home so residents can enjoy some entertainment.

Eric Haworth has been volunteering at the Colne home for over a year and started volunteering after losing his dad.

After identifying the home needed a music system for activities he used the money which was given to him to cover his travel expenses and bought a Busker 12 PA system.

Eric is currently volunteering abroad and before he left he visited the home and delivered the new system.

He said: “My late father was a very keen musician and I’m sure he would have been delighted that I am donating in his memory something that would add value to the sessions at MHA Belvedere Manor.

Leanne Harrandence, activity coordinator added: “ Eric comes to volunteer every other week and the residents love him.

“He used to live in the area but then moved away, the money we used to give Eric to cover his fuel is what he used to buy the music system.

“He provides a lot of joy and entertainment to the residents and knows about the issues we have with music equipment.

“We have many activities running each week and this piece of equipment will enhance the quality of what we are able to offer the residents.

“We are very thankful to him for his kind donation and will make sure we get plenty of use out of it.”
