We are always fundraising for essential items within Charlotte Straker House, to ensure our residents’ wellbeing and to ensure we provide the best possible environment and care.

Therefore, one of the ways you can help the Charlotte Straker Project, includes buying or donating towards something our residents really need. If you are considering this, please see all the things we are ‘wishing for’ below:

  • Reclining chair
  • First floor decoration
  • Telephone system

Donations have contributed significantly to the development of the facilities and purchase of equipment in CS over the last 23 years. The major building upgrade undertaken in 2013 was supported by donations and legacies. A back up generator, specialized profiling beds, overhead tracking to enable hoisting, syringe drivers to enable comfortable end of life care have all been supported by you.

Gift Aiding your donation enables us to make even more use of your generosity. It costs you nothing extra and only requires you to fill in a simple form.  Follow the links below.
