Caring Agency Supports Local Charities

Archived: Posted September 6, 2012

Core Assets Fostering Isle of Wight has boosted funds for local charities after raising over one thousand pounds at a summer fun day.

In August, Core Assets Fostering donated almost £600 to both the Barely Born Appeal at St. Mary’s hospital in Newport and ‘Face 2 Face,’ a befriending service for parents with disabled children, delivered by Scope. Monies were raised from cake sales, raffles and games at a family fun day for the agency’s foster families and looked after children.

Diane Le Moignan, regional manager for Core Assets Fostering South, presented the cheques saying: “Core Assets Fostering is committed to supporting local charities and projects that make a real difference to families within the community, so I’m thrilled to pass on the generous donation made by Core Assets Fostering staff and foster carers.”

“The on-going fundraising by carers and the Core Assets Fostering team demonstrates how passionate they are about the work they do to support vulnerable children and families.”

Core Assets Fostering foster carers come from all walks of life but they are all enthusiastic, patient and compassionate people.”

The Barely Born fund supports families with babies in the intensive care unit of St. Mary’s neonatal ward.

Annie Hunter, Head of Midwifery, said: “We are delighted that Barely Born was chosen by Core Assets Fostering and we are hoping to use the donation on updating a garden area adjacent to the unit for all the families who use our services.”

Scope is a national charity supporting disabled children and adults, and their families.
