Cornwall Care’s Trengrouse nursing home in Helston has benefited from a £500 donation raised by the organisers of this year’s Helstonbury Music Festival.
After taking a tour of the home and meeting residents and staff, festival organiser Paul Turton and Blue Anchor landlord Simon Stone presented a cheque to Trengrouse manager Melanie Bedlow.
“2019 marked the nineteenth Helstonbury event and we’re very proud to donate proceeds to a variety of very worthwhile local causes,” said Paul. “This money will go into the Trengroouse amenities fund that helps buy gifts, outings and activities for residents.”
Trengrouse provides 24-hour care for people living with complex dementia. There are 41 beds and 52 members of staff.
“We are really grateful for this donation and would like to thank everyone who works so hard making Helstonbury the annual success it is for their generosity,” said Melanie, who has worked at the home for seven years. “Funding like this enables us to buy extra treats for our residents that will, I know, be greatly appreciated.”
Cornwall Care runs 16 care homes in the county. The registered charity also looks after people with a range of different needs in their own homes.
