Radford care group springs into action with fayre fundraiser

Nottingham based charity Radford Care Group will be looking to raise crucial funds for its new Day-Care development at a spring fayre hosted at the centre this weekend.
 In previous years the charity has used its fayres as a way in which to raise thousands of pounds, as part of their in-house fund-raising, though the emphasis now is for raising funds towards the new building as £1.3 million is needed for the construction of Radford Care Group’s new facility.
Radford Care Group’s CEO Jill Davies said “All of us at the charity, both staff volunteers and our members, always look forward to the fayres. They are a great way of getting people together, which is what we as a care group are all about, and showing the community the care we are able to provide. There is something for everyone at any age so we see a wide range of visitors to the fayre, and this time should be no exception.”
Radford Care Group currently offers day care support for 85 older people a week. Established in 1968, the charity is this year celebrating its 50th anniversary.
Jill added: “The money raised at the spring fayre will provide much-needed funds for our new development, which we hope will get underway later this year; it will provide fantastic additional facilities and, in turn, improve the care we are able to offer to older people in our community.”
The development is due to start in July 2018 with the demolition of the existing building. The care group will have a temporary new home for six months before moving into their new and improved home. The project is supported by a number of Nottingham-based businesses, including
Gleeds and CPMG.
The Radford Care Group’s spring fayre will be held at its Day Centre in Prospect Street in Radford on Saturday 10 March, 10am to 12pm.
