Lakeside donated to The Brick Project, a growing charity that supports people who are homeless, in poverty or facing debt crisis.
Lakeside Care Home aims to do more by giving back to the community.
The Brick Project includes a Crisis Intervention Service and Wigan’s largest Food Bank.
Activity Coordinator, Ash Jennings, and Wellness Coordinator, Jill Silcock, at Lakeside discussed the idea to donate to the Brick Project as part of Random Act of Kindness Day.
The home has successfully collected clothes, shoes, blankets, tinned food and toiletries to donate. The focus was on necessities homeless people would need to prioritise.
The home is looking forward to more local, charitable projects, that they can support with their staff and residents.
