Home’s profitable DIY

There was a DIY element to the Pesach appeal of south London care home Nightingale as residents joined staff and volunteers to prepare the material for distribution.

Nightingale hopes to raise £90,000 towards the cost of running the home, one of the largest in Europe.

Chief executive Leon Smith pointed out: “Putting together the appeal takes patience and perseverance — a lot of envelopes were stuffed and stapled. The extra manpower that the volunteers provided was an enormous help.”

The appeal included extracts from letters from grateful relatives of residents.
