Our Trustee Geoff came in yesterday to play lots of games and activities with our clients. Deal or no Deal was a favorite but we ended up all winners with lots of prizes issued to all. Thanks again Geoff for another lovely afternoon for our clients.
And of course a Curly Wurly winner
Our wonderful volunteers Chris and Sue have retired from Marlow House after nearly 6 years of helping us with our weekend Meals on Wheels deliveries.
Thank you both so much for the time you have given to us. It's been greatly appreciated and you will be missed by all of our clients and team alike.
The flowers are a small token of our thanks, and we wish you both well for the future.
A new arm in our continuous effort to raise funds
If you have clothing or anything else listed to dispose of, please feel free to use this facility. Definitely no dogs!!!!
Another returning volunteer.....a warm welcome back to Joy!
We have missed all your help over the past year and our clients have missed your company in our lounge!
Great to have some regular faces back with us!
Welcome back Gwen.
You've been greatly missed by clients and staff and it's great to have you back with us.
Hello Everyone.....We would like to introduce to you all our new Care Co-Ordinator, Kirsty.
Kirsty started with us on Monday 10th May and has spent her first week getting to know all of the clients and staff. Kirsty comes with over 20 years experience in the care sector where she has worked various roles and has vast experience in this field that she is bringing with her to us.
Kirsty has a warm friendly vibe which will greatly add to our already wonderful day centre team. We hope you settle in to your new role with us all here.
Employees at Great Bear (warehousing and distribution) based in Desborough are raising money to support Marlow House. Jo Rock and Lesley Holmes are their charity champions and have been very busy this year running raffles and making Easter boxes for each of our clients. Pictured here is Oksana (one of the winners of a raffle) holding her prize.
A huge thank you to Jo and Lesley and all participants in the various activities. Fundraising is always paramount to us, but never more so than now when we’ve had to suspend our own events e.g. monthly coffee mornings and quizzes.
On the Monday before Easter Jo (black top) and Lesley (pink top) delivered 72 Easter gift boxes to Marlow House. That is correct, they raised enough money to buy goodies to make 72 in order that each of our clients receive one! VPK (Rigid) Packaging very kindly donated the boxes. Jo and Lesley presented one to each of our clients that were at Marlow House that day and the rest were delivered during the week, together with meals on wheels. Needless to say, it was very touching to hear comments when delivering boxes. Everyone was tickled pink and some couldn’t believe the trouble Jo and Lesley had gone to. A huge thank you to all at Great Bear and to VPK too.
The section below is a small photo gallery of of Jo and Lesley at Marlow House.
Our friends from Wacoal have so generously donated a Christmas present, as shown in the photo,
to each and everyone of our 70 clients. Many many thanks.
Santa popped in to Marlow recently, but who is under the costume???
Chairman, Alan Francis, wishes you all a very merry Christmas and is looking good in his new suit!!!!
Jane and Dave Fisher, long time supporters, popped in with these 2 gifts for clients. They are boxes of toiletries and treats, one box dedicated to a male, one to a female. Ken and Vera were the lucky names to be pulled out the hat and both were bowled over to be presented with them.
We had this beautiful Christmas cake delivered to Marlow house from one of our supporters and volunteers, Jane Moss. It is for staff and volunteers to enjoy.
Here we have a happy volunteer Carl Pegg helping paint the external walls of Marlow house!
Thank You Carl and Thank You to Lindsey, our Carer for dragging her husband out of his warm bed, in the Christmas holidays to support us here at Marlow House!
Here we have another happy husband volunteering his help.
Elaine has got Glen out in our garden area cutting down trees and having a tidy up with daughter Ziva. Thanks guys! It's looking great and we appreciate your time helping us!
A lovely lady called Natasha Golding organised in the local community, through her Facebook page, to have a number of Christmas 'Shoe Boxes' donated, to be shared amongst the elderly in the local area.
We were very lucky to be approached and had 32 presents donated to our clients.
This was absolutely amazing and our clients were so surprised and thankful for the generosity shown. .
A big big thank you to you Natasha for working so hard with the local people of Desborough to organise such a wonderful thing, especially after the year we've all had.
