Park Lane care home staff support local charity

Staff at Park Lane care home, in Congleton, decided to raise money for charity rather than sending Christmas cards out to friends and family.
 
The saving amounted to £160 which was donated to Listening Out Loud (LOL Foundation).
 
Karen Weighell and Steve Court, who work for the Congleton-based charity that supports Forces veterans to adjust to civilian life, were delighted to accept a cheque from home manager Jayne O’Sullivan.
 
Jayne said: “We all decided it was a waste of money sending Christmas cards that only get thrown away and it made more sense to send the money to a worthy local cause.”
 
LOL Foundation provides a range of services, including temporary housing and counselling, for veterans struggling with mental health issues.
