Brendoncare Froxfield’s Activity Coordinator, Deborah Aliyu has raised over £1000 for the care home near Marlborough, Wiltshire. She took on the challenge of a skydive from Old Sarum, near Salisbury.

Staff have been working relentlessly to care for residents during the coronavirus pandemic and Deborah decided to take part in this challenge to raise funds towards an interactive table for residents at Brendoncare Froxfield. The table is projected with games, music and social activities for residents to interact with and is particularly beneficial for people living with dementia.

Deborah Aliyu, Activities Coordinator at Brendoncare Froxfield, said, “I enjoy making people around me happy and work hard to ensure our residents are engaged with various activities that are meaningful and beneficial to them. I know the interactive table will bring lots of smiles and enjoyment to them.

Thank you to everyone who donated to my challenge. I am delighted to have raised just over £1000 towards the interactive table at Brendoncare Froxfield. I look forward to taking on another challenge soon!”

Brendoncare Froxfield, between Hungerford and Marlborough, is a nursing home which caters for 44 residents and includes a specialist 11 bed dementia care household. Froxfield has been specifically designed to enable older people to live independent, happy and fulfilling lives.
