Harvest House Charity Events
Cheque being presented (R to L) by HHSC Treasurer Brenda Caraco to Dr Alan Wimhurst, President, John Woollan, Treasurer and Roy Gray Vice-Chair of The League of Friends with Joan Schofield HHSC committee.
On Tuesday, 8th December Harvest House presented a cheque for £1220 to The League of Friends of Felixstowe Hospital.
Every year the residents of Harvest House hold a Charity Lunch and a Charity Sale of donated items and the proceeds are given to local charities as chosen by the residents. This year the recipients were The League of Friends of Felixstowe Hospital and the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Various events are held in Harvest House throughout the year. For the Charity Lunch, the residents pledge food items towards the meal, but also purchase their tickets in order to raise funds. Friends and relatives are invited to the Charity Sale which consists of donated items for sale plus coffee and cakes. The League of Friends supplement the resources of the community hospital for the benefit of patients and hospital users. Donations such as this go a long way to improving facilities for patients at the Felixstowe hospital.
