On June 14th a wheelchair convoy will set off from BEN's Alexandra House Care Centre in Southport to raise its awareness and collect funds for the motor industry charity.
The four-hour long Big Push is hoped to raise as much money as possible to buy new equipment for the Alexandra House Care Centre.
Alexandra House is owned and operated by BEN, the automotive industry charity and welcomes non-industry residents as well as former industry employees, their families and dependents.
‘The Big Push’ was suggested by Pauline Zalewski, daughter of an Alexandra House resident, who in her appreciation of the care received, was keen to raise awareness of the Centre’s services and much needed funds.
Participating residents of the care centre will be pushed in the wheelchairs by Alexandra House staff, as well as family and friends.
Alexandra House matron Jan Habeck said: “Alexandra House was recently given an Outstanding Quality Award by independent auditors and we hope ‘The Big Push’ will be the perfect opportunity to draw local residents’ attention to the fantastic care facility they have on their doorstep.”
