Posted on: 17/02/2022
Greendale Construction’s HR & Finance Director Maria Seabright was delighted to present cheques for £500 each to Nicki Cluley of Lewis-Manning Hospice, and Julie Laming, founder of Helping Young Minds Charity. The money was donated in lieu of sending out company Christmas cards.
Maria Seabright, explained: “Helping Young Minds offers creative activities, educational courses and practical workshops in a loving, inclusive and nurturing environment with the aim to develop confidence, resilience and mental wellbeing. These activities are designed to enable children, young people and parents to engage and connect with each other and share a space where they can feel heard, empowered and supported.
“Lewis-Manning Hospice Care is a charity dedicated to helping people with life limiting illnesses & their families across East Dorset. These services are offered to patients in a wide catchment area that covers East Dorset. A lot of patients say they feel they are treated differently after diagnosis, and are no longer allowed to live life to the fullest. Lewis-Manning hospice want its patients to enjoy their lives right up until their last moments, by having fun, laughing, and still being able to be themselves. Each patient’s safety and wellbeing is at the forefront of all the care they provide and they guarantee this at all times.
“Both Lewis-Manning Hospice and Helping Young Minds were our ‘runners up’ in the Greendale Charity of the Year vote, with MyTime Young Carers winning the vote. It’s extremely important to us that we support local charities and give back what we can, even during what has been a difficult and challenging time for all during these past 2 years.”
