Eagle Radio's Charity of the Year
Congratulations to The Orchard Dementia Centre in Chertsey!
In 2017, Eagle Radio will be championing The Orchard Dementia Centre, making them our Charity of the Year.
We will be raising funds for the charity with events and fundraising activities throughout the year, giving them a platform to showcase the fantastic work they are doing through Eagle 360, offering web, radio, social and mobile exposure.
We shortlisted six deserving charities in Surrey and Hampshire, and asked you to vote for the one that you think should be Eagle Radio’s Charity of the Year. Scroll down to see the other shortlisted charities.
You chose The Orchard Centre, with a mammoth 6583 votes.
The Orchard Dementia Centre provides a safe and stimulating environment for individuals living with Dementia. The centre encourages integration in the local community, encourages friendships, independence, laughter and much needed respite for families and carers.
Our staff at the centre are committed to providing stimulating and sensitive care that maintains the dignity of the clients. This is vitally important in times where Dementia is on the increase and similar services are being closed.
"I'll shave my head if we win Eagle Radio's Charity of the Year!".
Matt works at the Orchard Dementia Centre and does a great job being part of the team who look after the residents.
And he was fairly excited to become Charity of the Year to say the least...
Well, you named it, Matt!
Animals take over The Orchard Dementia Centre!
Rabbits, puppies and even a pony visited the Orchard on a rather unconventional Wednesday afternoon in March!
Browells Pet Therapy paid the charity a visit which was warmly welcomed by everyone at the centre.
The animals were well prepared and even came with their own nappies! See it for yourself:
