Fern Brook Lodge comes together for charity coffee morning

Published: 8th October 2020

Residents, staff at Fern Brook Lodge overcame the odds to raise money for a cancer charity.

Despite the difficulties of arranging fundraising events during COVID-19, the residential and dementia care home came together for a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

While Fern Brook Lodge would normally take part in the Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, inviting the Gillingham and Shaftesbury community into the care home, staff didn’t want residents to miss out on such a fun event and the Macmillan to lose out on vital cash to support its work. They organised a morning of delicious cakes and coffee with residents while taking a break to socialise.
