This year The Team at Spec Recruitment are volunteering once a month with local charities in Bristol!
Milestones Trust is a Bristol-based health and social care charity set up in 1986 to support people with learning disabilities, mental health and eldercare needs, to lead fulfilling and empowered lives in the community. They support around 1000 people in residential and nursing care homes, supported living and community-based day services.
With such a large estate and constraints imposed on social care budgets, they really value the support they receive from the public who donate their time through volunteering and donations.
How we helped:
To kick-start our 2018 campaign we completed PROJECT PAINT!
We redecorated a new residents bedroom in one of the supported living accommodations. An elderly lady of 98 is due to be moving into this room within the next couple of weeks, and it certainly required a lick of paint!
The end result, hhmmm not quite Lawrence Llewellyn Bowen but hopefully good enough to put a smile on the newbie’s face. We thoroughly enjoyed our time volunteering and hope that the new resident is happy with her bright and fresh bedroom!
Thank you to the staff at the home and to Lianne who helped coordinate the decorating project from start to finish!
