The Hospital Saturday Fund offers generous donation to Livability care home

The charity has given £10,000 to be used for Livability’s Treetops care home as part of the Home Design Appeal.

Founded in 1873 by philanthropist 12th Earl of Meath Reginald Brabazon, The Saturday Hospital Fund offers funds to registered charities and health organisations in need of grants.

The charity funded Livability Icanho with a grant of £1,000 in 2013 and has offered £10,000 towards much needed renovation work and equipment at Treetops in Colchester.

Located in a pleasant suburb of Colchester in Essex, Treetops is a high dependency centre with 21 self-contained flatlets, offering its residents the full support they need with the freedom and opportunity to be a part of the community.

HRH Princess Anne visited Treetops in April earlier this year to raise awareness of the Home Design Appeal campaign.

The Hospital Saturday Fund Chief Executive Paul Jackson presented the donation to Livability CEO Dave Webber. He commented:

‘Livability’s Home Design Appeal is an extremely worthwhile project which will make a huge difference to the lives of the residents at Treetops.

‘I am very pleased that The Hospital Saturday Fund is able to contribute towards this project and help to enable the residents to lead much more independent and fulfilling lives.’

Livability’s Head of Trusts and Grants Athina Fokidou said:

‘We are very grateful indeed for their wonderful contribution.

‘The donation will go towards providing specialist beds and hoists which will improve the freedom and independence of residents at Treetops.’
