Vote Weekend Care for the Galaxy Hot Chocolate Fund

Posted on

From 7 November 2016 until 26 February 2017, the Galaxy Hot Chocolate Fund seeks to award a total of seventy, £300 donations to help community groups and people across UK and Ireland.

Five donations will be awarded each week, four by a panel of judges and one through the People’s Choice award to the organisation with the most weekly votes.

What is Weekend Care?

Weekend Care is an organisation providing a safe stimulating space and wellbeing sessions on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays for people over 50. We help people with dementia, people who are lonely or isolated, people who need encouragement with social interaction and elderly who just need a little company at the weekend.

How will Weekend Care use the prize?

We will put the £300 towards our “wish list” project, This project is aimed at helping our guests do things they have never done, things they wish they had done when younger or things they would like to do before its too late.

For example one lady wants to swim with sharks, so we want to go to a Sealife Centre and go through the shark tunnel and one gent would like to go to Wimbledon, so we would like to hold a Wimbledon day, with tennis players and strawberries and cream. £300 from galaxy would make a lot of these wishes a reality.

You can register one vote per week for Weekend Care and voting closes on February 26th 2017
