Calderdale Cares are pleased to announce a donation of £900 to the residents of Goodwin House sheltered accommodation scheme.

The donation will go towards a couple of outings for the residents, the first to Scarborough next week and then later in the year to Blackpool.

Eileen Robinson was thrilled with the donation and says, “This is a real shot in the arm for our residents. We do various fundraising schemes ourselves such as coffee mornings and jumble sales but we could never raise this much money.

Now we have booked the day trips, all the resident are really looking forward to it. All we need now is for some good weather.

Richard Watmough from Calderdale Cares says. “Its great that we have been able to help out the Goodwin House residents, but this has only been achieved by the funds raised by the people who are members of the Calderdale Cares Lottery. We want to help as many people as we can so the more members we have, the more we can donate to local good causes.”
