On Saturday a Mears care branch in Liverpool hosted a spectacular event for local residents, including many of the older and disabled people who use the Mears care service, to help raise money for Marie Curie. Raffles, bric a brac stalls, tea and cakes made this day extra special as the community rallied around to support a great cause.
Mears Care provide home care to local people living in Liverpool and Aintree, providing services to help people remain independent at home including cooking, cleaning, personal and live-in care. Local Mears employees donated time and energy into making the fundraising day a success with over £707.58 raised in total.
Service user Jean Downes helped organise a children's play area for the day to entertain the local children and also set up two tables of her own to help raise money.
Colette Byrne from Marie Curie says 'We are delighted that Mears Group PLC supported our charity with their charity day. They have raised a fantastic amount of money which will help us continue our care to terminally ill patients in Merseyside. We're so grateful for their support'.
Richard Wheatley, Manager at Liverpool said 'It is important that we help our service users enjoy life, that's why an event like this is fantastic as the community really comes together.'
