Following a wonderful donation from its Christmas Collection the Chair of our Charities board was delighted to take part in Rotary’s Quiz night that raised a well needed donation to the wonderful work that Crossroads staff have delivered to members and their families.

Crossroads Chair Geraldine Orfeaur was delighted with the magnificent gift when she and staff from the charity attended the Clubs presentation on 26th January 2017 at the Toyota Show Rooms on the A10. A great night for a great cause.

2017 Christmas Rotary Collection by the Crossroads elves!

Yet another excellent response from the community to Rotary’s Santa’s magic Sleigh Ride!

The night was dark, the wind blew cold but all around we brought joy and pleasure as the magic sleigh glided through the streets bringing Christmas cheer to young and old alike. Children gathered on street corners and people danced in the streets.

“We were waiting for you” one resident said and handed a bucket full of change to one of Santa’s little helpers.

Others stood on their door steps, waved and joined in the Christmas spirit as led by our Chair  Geraldine Orfeur and senior Rotarian’s from the Edmonton branch we played festive songs

joy really did shine around as pounds and pennies rattled in our collection boxes!

Carers who need respite care are advised to request a Carers Assessment of your needs –

Crossroads Lea Valley Branding message #005

Respite

Do you need respite care so you can have a life outside of caring?

If this is you and you have not requested a carers assessment please think about getting one done today!

Why?

Carers have a right to have their needs assessed in their own rights not just the needs of the person they care for. By getting a carers assessment  may mean that there will be help, practical, emotional and possibly financial to help you as a carer continue to care.

Who to Contact?

If there is a social worker involved in looking after your cared for then talk to them or contact Enfield Social Services either via their website, phone or in person.

Alternatively

Get in touch with Enfield Carers Center, Britania House, 137-143 Baker Street, Enfield EN1 3JL 020 83663677 who will be able to advise and in some cases assist in getting you a Carers Assessment.
