We are very happy to announce that a cheque for a total of £429.00 has been sent to the charity BBC Children in need.
BBC Children in Need was our chosen quarterly charity in the Autumn of 2019 and the sum of £429.00 was raised by a BBC Children in Need Raffle, a staff raffle and a staff 50-50 Club.
The coffee morning held on November 21st was a great success raising a total of £260.00 for Macmillan Cancer Care.
We had a total of 10 cakes baked, from residents, staff, and Sibbertoft residents—all of which were absolutely delicious . The winner was our HR Manager Jo Reed and the residents cake was a well placed 3rd.
Thank you everybody for your support; it’s very much appreciated.
One of our residents, Mary, has designed these lovely Christmas Cards. They are on sale at the nursing home (5 for a £1) Proceeds from sales will go to her nominated charity – Riding for the Disabled. If you would like to purchase any please see Mary, Jo or Tricia.

Take a look at our superb Halloween display in the Main Hall; this has been created by our Activity Coordinator. All the children from Sibbertoft Village will be coming to the Manor on Thursday the 31st October for ‘Trick or Treat’. I’m sure that they will be truly ‘scared’…..
We wish a warm welcome to our new colleagues; Victoria Pearse, Geneveve Crane and Jamie Hazelton who have joined us as Care Assistants. Nathan Hollis who has joined our Housekeeping ranks and Mary Powell who is now working in the office. We also welcome back to Sibbertoft Manor, Kate James in her role as an Activities Co-ordinator.
Our congratulations to Gosia and her family on the safe arrival of little Antoni.
Children have now returned to school after the Summer holidays so Fee has resumed her volunteer work; reading with the children
from Welford School. If anyone else would like to help with this weekly activity please let us know, they would be very welcome.
The children benefit hugely from individuals taking the time to listen to them and encouraging their reading skills. We will take the minibus weekly so please let us know if you are interested in attending.
Some of our residents have recently expressed a wish for ‘guest’ speakers to come to the home to provide talks of interest. We have sent out several invitations to local establishments, businesses and charities and are waiting for responses. We hope that a programme of talks will commence in late October. Details of all talks will be circulated as soon as they are confirmed.
Please remember the minibus is available to take you on outings. If anyone would like to visit Market Harborough, go for coffee or visit local attractions please let a member of activity staff know and they will be happy to arrange this for you.
