Our branches have chosen their own local charities to support this year with a host of fund raising activities.
Grantham Branch has this year decided to support the Naomi Fund.
Dean and Michelle Fardell are a local well known couple in Grantham who have been customers of the Melton for many years. Their second daughter, Naomi, was born in 1997 but soon after her birth they found that she had severe congenital heart defects. She spent time on the Grantham Kingfisher Ward and in Glenfield Hospital and later was referred to Great Ormond Street Hospital. After 2 and a half years and constant poor health and operations Naomi passed away at Glenfield Intensive Care Unit.
Since then Dean and Michelle together with family friend Ben Benbow, have raised money in Naomi’s name for all three hospitals.
Melton Branch has chosen to support the Melton & District Furniture Project.
The Project, which is located at the Warehouse, Park Road, Melton Mowbray is run to help people on benefits and/or low income living in Melton Mowbray and its surrounding villages as well as Rutland, to have access to low cost furniture and household goods. The Project re-uses most items which are donated by the general public and collected free of charge.
Oakham Branch has chosen to support Dove Cottage Day Hospice in Ridlington, near Oakham in Rutland.
The Hospice provides supportive palliative day care services for people living with cancer and other progressive conditions. There are 20 day care places and all services are provided free of charge, including a home cooked 3 course lunch. The premises are homely and peaceful, set in the beautiful Rutland countryside. The Hospice is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
