Yesterday, charity presentations took place at Green Tree Court, following the success of our festive fundraising efforts!Resident Margaret Walton presented the cheques of £317 each to David Fields from MIND Somerset and Gina Awad from Exeter Dementia Action Alliance.
In addition, Gina was presented with the £110 raised from the sale of the 2019 Alliance calendar, which was illustrated Private Eye Cartoonist, Tony Husband, of which Green Tree Court was also a month sponsor (June).
The presentation was attended by residents, staff and relatives and was followed by a cream tea.
