Two cheques were presented during the recent Annual General Meeting of Ribble Valley Crossroads Care.
Finance manager Grace Hore was handed cheques from Mark Woodward from the Printed Cup Company. Mr Woodward had raised the funds by wearing a multi-coloured “onesi” at formal business meetings and as a result the charity received a cheque for £1,500. Mr Jason Addy, who had completed a sponsored bike ride, also presented a cheque for £650.
Congratulations were given to both gentlemen for their great efforts and generosity by Mrs Hore and all present.
The AGM was opened by the Mayor of Ribble Valley Coun. Bridget Hilton, who opened and chaired the meeting. Also present were the Clitheroe Town Mayor Coun. Sue Knox and her consort Coun. Allan Knox, carers, supporters, staff and trustees.
Crossroads chairman Mr Tom McLean gave a resume of the developments and activities that had taken place thoughout the year. He also introduced the new manager Shauna Wrigley and paid particular tribute to all the Crossroads’ staff who had worked tirelessly, maintaining a high standard of care throughout a very difficult year.
During the time for questions and comments about the service, one family member gave a moving account of the excellent and dedicated care the staff had given to his father and the ongoing support they gave to his mother who was the main carer.
Following the formal part of the meeting a reception and buffet was held.
