Season of goodwill continues thanks to Coleshill Town Supporters' Club

St Josephs

While the Christmas season may be over, the season of goodwill is still alive and kicking at Coleshill Town Supporters’ Club as they donated two lovely hampers to the people who live and work at St Joseph’s Residential Home.

In 2016 the Club held a Christmas raffle, giving away two food hampers as prizes. Each contained a selection of biscuits, chocolates and other treats. The lucky winner was the Vice Chairman of Coleshill Town FC, Ian Wright, but instead of keeping the prizes, he decided to donate them to charity so others could enjoy them.

They chose to donate the hampers to St Joseph’s, which cares for older people and those living with dementia, as Colin Wheatley, the treasurer of the Supporters’ Club, has a relative who lives there.

Alan presented the hampers and chatted to care staff and residents, who said they were “delighted” to receive the gift and thanked the club for thinking of them.

The contents of the hampers will be shared among residents and staff to spread the generous gifts among as many people as possible.

St Joseph’s is a residential home providing person-centred care and support to older people and those living with dementia. To find out more, visit St Joseph’s page on this website.
