Orwell Housing paying for a day of care and support from EACH across Suffolk

Mar 08, 2019

Orwell Housing is paying for a day of care and support from EACH across Suffolk today, having raised a superb £7,131.65.

The company’s 600 members of staff have been busy taking part in various fundraising activities and initiatives over the past year, including their 55 miles for 55 years challenge that saw a group walk from Southwold to Ipswich over two days, camping in a colleague’s garden overnight. The event doubled as a celebration of Orwell Housing’s 55th anniversary.

Other fundraising highlights have included Michelle Jallow doing a skydive and the 12 days of fundraising by staff over Christmas that brought in £2,500.

As well as those efforts, Orwell Housing has taken part in Bag It, Bring It, Boost It, collecting some 110 bags worth an average of £10 each.

Next month, some staff will attend a volunteering day at The Treehouse.

Wendy Evans-Hendrick, Orwell Housing CEO, says: “It made us proud to support EACH with their fundraising efforts as it’s such a worthwhile cause.  All the staff got involved and really enjoyed themselves in doing so.”

Orwell Housing manages around 4,000 properties across Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex, providing homes for over 7,500 residents.

  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
