Charity night raised £2,000

Posted on October 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Members of the National Care Association raised £1000 for a cancer charity at the eve of conference buffet supper, which was matched by conference sponsor Royal Bank of Scotland. A total of £2000 will be handed over to the Marie Curie Hospice in Hampstead. NCA chief executive Sheila Scott said the NCA’s London office lost a valued member of staff, Celia Jenkins in July this year. She had worked for NCA for 18 years and she died in the Marie Curie hospice. “We were absolutely thrilled with the generosity of people,” said Mrs Scott. “In recent years we have raised around £400 at these events and the amount we raised this year is five times that figure. Celia will be remembered fondly by all of the staff at NCA and we are so grateful for the kind donations from our members.”
