Part of the Ableworld national mobility retail chain, the Ableworld Northwich team has been able to help a local care home by supplying 23 much-needed cushions for residents.
Brothers Andrew and Chris Matzen have set about raising money for Elmhurst Intermediate Care Centre, based in Winsford, Cheshire, in honour of their dad Ronald Matzen. Ronald was a resident at Elmhurst Care Centre when he passed away and to show their support to the care home, Andrew, Chris and Grandson Lewis wanted to thank the home for taking such great care of him.
When Andrew contacted Elmhurst to see what supplies they needed, he was made aware that the care home needed an additional 50 cushions to have enough for all residents.
Andrew then got in contact with the Ableworld Northwich store to see if there was anything the team could do to support his mission. The Ableworld Northwich team was able to offer a discount on the required cushions to help support the cause.
With the money raised from their dad’s funeral, Andrew and Chris were able to purchase a total of 23 cushions from Ableworld for the care home. Nurses Amy, Debbie and Emma were extremely thankful for this kind donation and said it will really help their residents.
Ann, Store Manager at Ableworld Northwich, said: “We are really pleased we could help Andrew in his mission to support a local care home, it is a lovely thing to do. We are proud be able to play a small part in helping our local community through this difficult time, and wish Andrew every success.”
The Ableworld Northwich team delivered the cushions to Elmhurst recently, while socially distancing, and managed to meet Andrew and his family, along with staff from the care home.
