Thank you to our donors

As the year draws to a close, the Governors of Sir John Hawkins Hospital would like to thank those organisations that have made very generous donations to us over the past year: The Patron’s Fund; Mr Nick Wood; the Medway Mission to Seamen Trust and the Chatham Naval Officers Association.

Their generosity has enabled us to buy several items of garden furniture for our residents to enjoy in the summer months; install a stairlift in one of the flats to help a disabled resident and to upgrade the Telecare emergency call equipment for each resident.

 

Heritage Open Weekend

We were delighted to welcome so many visitors to the almshouse and the boardroom over the Heritage Weekend. Despite the slightly unkind weather, visitors were also able to stroll around our delightful little garden and enjoy a delicious cream tea. Several visitors were returnees who had appreciated our hospitality last year and we hope to welcome many more visitors at next year’s event on 15th and 16th September 2018.  Many thanks to everyone who participated in the event this year.
