As thousands descended on the town to attend the Cheltenham Festival, Staff and members at the Phoenix began their week of fundraising. Selling, tea, cakes and holding a collection whilst taking to fancy dress for St Patrick’s and braving the cold on Gold Cup Day.
When the week came to an end the total collection was counted up to unveil a fantastic fundraising sum of £900. Through the generosity of the passing crowd on their way to the racecourse, St Vincent’s & St George’s Association will now be using the money to purchase a new ceiling hoist, allowing more of our members at the Phoenix the opportunity to leave their wheelchair and access new activity room.
We would like to thank everyone who donated towards our fundraising efforts and also a huge well done to all of the staff and members involved in such a fantastic and successful week!
