The Royal Star & Garter home in High Wycombe has donated a £500 cheque to the High Wycombe Sea Cadets.
The donation came after Royal Star & Garter won £500 to give to a charity of its choice following its short-listing in the the Dementia Care category of the Pinders Healthcare Design Awards in December 2019.
Based in Chestnut Avenue, the Sea Cadets group was chosen by Royal Star & Garter’s High Wycombe Home Manager Chelle Daly: She said: ‘I was invited to the local Sea Cadets in August 2018 and they made me feel so welcome.
Since then I’ve been to many more of their events, and we’ve built close links. I’m looking forward to welcoming cadets into the Home in the near future. It’s great to be able to support a valuable group in our community.‘
High Wycombe Sea Cadet Trustee Brian Taylor, Chairperson June Taylor and cadet MC2 Jordan visited the Home on Tuesday 18th February 2020, on the same day Pinders judges were also touring the Home.
June said: ‘We don’t usually receive this amount, it’s a very large donation, and we’re very grateful to Chelle and Royal Star & Garter. The donation will help us enormously, it means a lot to us.‘
Chelle also received a special trophy from the judges for its short-listing. The Pinders Healthcare Design Awards aim to promote and recognise the very best developments in all types of care related property. The awards ceremony takes place on Wednesday 11th March 2020.
