WELL DONE everybody
Christmas Lunches 2019
December 10/11/12th saw the now famous Christmas Lunches being served for Clients and friends of Marlow House.
Click on the link below to see how much we all enjoyed ourselves.
Helen Crabtree ran “Name the Teddy” for the three days and raised £110. The bear’s name was LENNIE. Many thanks Helen.
We also held a raffle each day and are very grateful to Celia Coe for providing a beautiful floral arrangement for each raffle. Many thanks to Wacoal Europe(the old Corset factory) of Desborough for donating a smashing Christmas hamper for each raffle. The three day total raised £186.
A huge THANK YOU to Andy in our kitchen and the many volunteers for helping him, which made the three days possible.
The generosity of WACOAL extended to them providing all the Xmas crackers and paying for ALL of the food. We are indebted to them and cannot thank them enough.
Corrugated packaging manufacturer Rigid Containers has donated £600 from an employee competition to Marlow House, for which we cannot thank them enough. To read the full story click on the link.
A big thank you to Helen & June…..
Staunch supporter and volunteer Helen Crabtree and friend June Sullivan organised a ballroom and sequence dance at Tresham Hall in Rothwell on Saturday 1st February. Tickets sold out quickly and thanks to their endeavours and all who attended a magnificent £1,300 was raised!!! Pictured are Helen and June presenting the 'cheque' to Chair of trustees, Alan Francis, alongside a picture of the dance in full swing.
A huge raffle consisting totally of donations was run by Helen and June with nigh-on military precision, a successful tombola and roll a coin to a bottle in the middle of the room (nearest wins the bottle) all helped to achieve an amazing total.
Our grateful thanks to the committee of Rothwell Conservative Club for not charging for the room, and to the gentleman who spent the evening providing the music.
Marlow House have been exceptionally fortunate in receiving corporate support and donations during the last twelve months and Jacaranda Carpets & Rugs (Desborough) is one of the companies that approached us to see how they could help. They opted to start a monthly standing order payment to us and recently we had the pleasure of meeting employees Angela and Samantha who came to Marlow House to better understand how their donations help our work. A tour of the building and lots of questions helped to build a full picture of the extent of the services we provide, and how we value any and all donations, be they of volunteers time and skills, unwanted items for us to sell at monthly coffee mornings or financial. We are very grateful to Jacaranda for their monthly donations, and to Angela and Samantha for taking the time to visit – a big thank you.
DUE TO THE CORONAVIRIUS CRISIS, MARLOW HOUSE IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
We will continue with our Meals on Wheels and Bathing service.
