Elderly Beaconsfield care home resident turns charity events organiser
A CARE home resident has been given a new lease of life as a fundraiser after bringing the community together for a charity tea party last week.
When 89-year-old Moira Mude heard of Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event she decided to hold one at her home in Harrias House, Beaconsfield.
After making all the arrangements, staff, visitors, friends and family all came together last Friday to help her raise £495.99 towards the charity’s work.
And after one successful event, Harris House activities coordinator Diane Woolford said Moira is raring to go on the next fundraising challenge.
“Moira asked to get involved when she heard about the event, and it was a very successful morning,” she said.
“It was great that everyone came together and contributed and it felt like a real community event.
“Now she is really up for her next challenge. She says she’d much rather use her life to give back and not to sit back, rest on her laurels and take from others.”
Harrias House home on Hedgerley Lane is a not-for-profit home run by registered charity Beaconsfield Housing Society.
It was established in 1954 solely to provide a care home for the town.
