Fundraising at Mellish House Successfully Secures Digital Rainbow Table
The team and many supporters of Mellish House Care Home have been working together to raise funds for a Digital Rainbow Table at the home.
The Digital Rainbow Table is an interactive digital table that can deliver a fantastic portfolio of fun individual and group activities. With an app for all our residents, the table can be used along with out traditional activities, offering our residents an opportunity to engage in new, fun digital experiences.
Our fundraising kicked off earlier this year with one of our relatives – Bec, who walked 86 miles and raised over £3000, which was more than half of our target. This was followed up by several wonderful donations from residents’ relatives. Maria Caroline Mayes and Karen Ascott kindly donated in memory of their loved ones who had been residents at Mellish House. £375 was kindly donated by our local Waitrose, which was organised by a relative of one of our residents and a special mention to Violet for making the first donation and supporting us as always,
To add the remaining amount needed our lovely Senior Carer Chris Gannon and Tracey Tate, daughter of our resident Josephine, bravely threw themselves out of an airplane! They both completed their tandem skydive raising £715 towards our Digital Rainbow Table.
Maekhala Allan, Home Manager at Mellish House Care Home stated” it makes me so happy to be able to say we have reached our target and residents at Mellish House will soon be able to enjoy this amazing piece of equipment.
“We are so excited and can’t thank every single person enough, who have helped us raise this money and make this possible. It means the world to us and we truly appreciate it.
“This is a fantastic piece of technology that offers a huge variety of activities which are suitable for a very wide range of physical and mental abilities. What’s even better is it being on wheels and height adjustable, which makes this accessible for any resident anywhere meaning complete inclusivity. We at Mellish House are confident that the Digital Rainbow Table would provide so much enrichment for the mindful wellness of every one of our residents.”
