Spencer eases some of the strain out of Dorothys shoulders
Home Instead in Nottingham threw open its doors to take part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on September 30 in order to raise funds for Macmillan cancer research, whilst at the same time providing a friendly meeting place where people could get together and chat as they enjoyed coffee and a wonderful spread of cakes, provided by friends and relatives.
Home Instead Senior Care is based on the Beeston Business Park in Beeston Rylands. It specialises in providing the support for people who wish to remain in their own homes as they advance in years. There were about 20 guests at the coffee morning, including visitors from Sandby Court, Chilwell and Neville Sadler Court, Beeston, as well as other clients of Home Instead and a number of caregivers.
Home Instead manager Primo Sule had arranged for Spencer Coleman, a specialist in sports and stress relief massage from Borrowash, Derby, to offer a trial of particular massage techniques. Eighty-nine year old Dorothy Gibson, from Sandby Court, decided to try a seated massage. “This is lovely”, she said. “It feels just wonderful, and I would certainly consider having more”.
Raffle tickets were sold at the coffee morning, with many of the prizes donated by local businesses.
Mr Sule said afterwards; “It was a good event and we managed to collect just over £110 for Macmillan cancer research.
“All the ladies and gentleman enjoyed their time and also took away some goodies following the prize draw”.
Mr Sule is assisted at Home Instead Senior Care by care manager Sarah Gell and community liaison manager Rebecca Houghton.
