Lichfield Ladies Circle continue to support local charities

Lichfield Ladies Circle were  delighted to support 2 more local charities through their fundraising activities. In November they had the pleasure of donating £250 to the Lichfield based self help group, Open Door of Hope. Since October 2011, the group has been catering for Mental Health Service Users, their carers and their families through providing a relaxed environment in which people can share their experiences and problems through a range of activities such as exercise, afternoon tea, arts and crafts and local excursions. Mike Wetson, co founder of the group said: this kind donation firstly helped to cover our weekly rent, secondly helped towards getting a website up and running but most importantly it allowed us to provide a buffet at our Christmas party for our members.”

In December, the Lichfield ladies embraced the Christmas spirit and made their handmade  Christmas wreaths which were then sold at the Lichfield Christmas market. The money raised was donated to the Lichfield and District Live at Home Scheme. The scheme encourages older people to live independently so as to avoid social isolation, maintain their independence and control over their life choices and maintain contacts within the community. The aim is to improve the quality of life and overall health and well being through social interaction and support whilst maintaining the security of independent living. Caroline Bruno, Live at Home Scheme Manager said “we are delighted with this generous donation and look forward to investing it in our current services that are run by the scheme.”
