Kind Hearts Charity, based in Walsall, lived up to its name by raising much needed funds for a minibus appeal for Pelsall Hall, a residential care home in Pelsall. The home, managed by a care home charity Greensleeves Homes Trust, received a generous donation of £1,500 from the charity. Kind Hearts Charity was set up by Ann and Linda to raise funds for charitable causes and in the last two years has raised more than £11,000 for good causes including Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, Children in Need, Autism Support and Cerebral Palsy.
Ann has been raising funds for charities for many years and Linda started to fundraise after her grandson Bradley, aged 10, was diagnosed with Friedreich’s Ataxia and she wanted to support the charity (Ataxia UK) which works on finding treatments and cures for the condition.
Anne and Linda set up a shop on High Street in Clayhanger and sell their knitted items, bric-a-brac, gift sets to raise money for good causes.
“This year we wanted to support people with dementia and having heard of Pelsall Hall’s excellent reputation in dementia care, we decided to support this local charity care home.” – said Ann from Kind Hearts Charity.
The money raised by the charity will be going towards the Pelsall Hall’s Minibus Appeal. So far Pelsall Hall raised more than £4,000 towards the purchase of a minibus which will enable the home to take its residents on day trips to local places of interest.
Steve Brookes, Home Manager of Pelsall Hall, said “Ann and Linda have raised a fantastic amount and the residents will benefit directly from this with trips out during the year. We are so grateful to them for thinking of us at Pelsall Hall. ”
