2016 Off To A Great Start For HAH Mar Menor
Thanks to Sue Kirkpatrick who decided that HAH Mar Menor would be the chosen charity during her year as Captain of the Sierra Golf Society.
During 2015, various events were organised and the money raised was dedicated to HAH. On 20th January, Heather McElvey, Area Care-Co-ordinator, along with founders of the charity, Lesley & Paul Eburne, visited the Pereleja Golf Club where a fantastic donation of 700€ was handed to them, by Sue, and the Club Chairman, Mr. Brian Spring.
Lesley explained to the visiting committee exactly what HAH does, and has done for over 600 clients in the past 5 years, how the Volunteers work together as a team and outside Nurses, Physios, Counsellors etc. are brought in for expert advice and home visits.
She said “We are delighted to receive this donation which will go a long way to continue to help people in our community who are struggling to cope following illness. Subject to resources, we will assess and help wherever possible for 3 months. This service is FREE and enables the clients time to make permanent provision if necessary. We have to limit the time as currently our care services are working on average 150 hours per month.”
Heather said “We also loan out FREE, mobility equipment for up to 3 months to our clients, again, subject to availability”.
Sue thanked HAH representatives for coming and said she was delighted to be able to support HAH in the very worthwhile work they do.
If you would like to become a HAH volunteer, giving a little time when you can, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call Lesley on 968 134 978.
