Kingsley Supports Lowestoft Foodbank
Head office staff promoted the charity by handing out leaflets at Tesco’s superstore in Corton while a successful food collection was held at Kingsley House. About 20 staff members worked at the foodbank on two hour shifts packing food boxes. The company also made a donation to the charity which supports on average 50 to 60 people a week with three-day emergency food parcels.
Kingsley CEO Daya Thayan is committed to supporting the communities in which his business operates; in previous years, the head office team has supported the Salvation Army and Lowestoft over-60s centre among other good causes. Every one of Kingsley’s care homes has also been involved in charity fundraising raising thousands of pounds during 2018. Among them, Sharston House, in Knutsford has supported a range of good causes including Alzheimer’s Society and Macmillan Cancer Support; Hadleigh Nursing Home has raised money for Save the Children and Alzheimer’s Society; Redwalls Nursing Home in Sandiway has supported St Luke’s Hospice and its local foodbank; Park Lane care home, in Congleton, held a 1970s night and raised £1,400 towards a special projector for the benefit of residents living with dementia.
