Burgess Hill-Based Business Bio-Productions Shared Some Puppy Love with Forest View Care Home
The environmentally-friendly cleaning products manufacturer leant a helping hand at the care home's annual summer fete, which raises funds for residents and day centre users.
Bio-Productions donated raffle prizes, baked cakes and provided six cleaning kits, which were specially customised for the event. The team were joined at the event by Account Assistant, Rebecca Banks’ pooch, Miah, a three-year-old Springer spaniel, who accompanies her to work every day. Rebecca used to work at Forest View, so Miah is a favourite with the residents.
Rebecca said, “We do all of our ‘own label’ printing in-house, so we thought, given the residents affection for Miah, it would be fun to print photos of her on the cleaning kits. I've only been working at Bio-Productions for three months, but the company really supported the fundraising efforts - it was lovely to see the whole team get involved.”
The event turned out to be a huge success for Forest View, which is owned by Shaw Healthcare. More than £1000 was raised on the day, and will now be spent on providing trips and activities to Forest View residents and day centre visitors.
“We love supporting local causes like these.” says Angela Gill, Managing Director. “There's a lot in the news at the moment about keeping our older generations engaged with their local communities, so we really wanted to help Forest View achieve that in Burgess Hill. Many of our team live in the town and we really enjoy our community.”
