Christies Care held a special Valentine’s Day event in memory of one of its carers, with the aim to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.
As office staff and carers gathered to remember Susan Atkinson, who passed away in 2019, Christies Care was able to raise awareness of the dangers of heart and circulatory diseases. According to the care franchise, more than seven million people suffer from them and 25 percent will die because of them.
These shocking statistics demonstrate the importance of further medical research, which is what the franchise’s donation will fund. On the day, Christies Care staff were encouraged to dress in red (to reflect the British Heart Foundation logo) and pink (Susan’s favourite colour).
They were also able to tuck into healthy, delicious food and take part in the raffle, with prizes donated by Christies Care employees and local organisations. Staff even took part in a Fitbit Challenge throughout the week, wearing fitness tracking devices and competing to rack up the highest number of steps.
Christies Care urged everyone in the franchise to get involved and make a donation, from head office staff to carers and customers. It set an £850 target and collected money to give to the British Heart Foundation. It is hoped this will help the charity conduct more life-saving research to support those affected by heart and circulatory diseases.
Making a donation is a simple process, just head to https://www.justgiving.com/account/your-pages/Christies-Care-BHF and send your chosen amount online.
