Fairknowe is a local care home in Maybole and has for many years provided a local option for Maybole residents and their families in respect of care. The benefit of this is that friends and relatives can easily access and visit their loved ones without having to travel. The standard of care is high however although the care has to be funded partially by families in partnership with the authorities this is predominately directed towards care of the residents and does not leave much to support other recreational activities out with what the staff can provide. Many of my friends and people I grew up with have been and are in Fairknowe and I would like to raise funds under the auspices of Lodge St. John Maybole No.11 to help towards the purchase of a minibus which would bring a much needed resource to the residents and enhance the care provision and quality of life through local trips and excursions. I realise that the sum I am endeavouring to raise will only provide a small portion of the sum needed however every little bit of support will help support Fairknowe and keep this local care facility a place where you can ensure your loved ones have a real quality of life in their later years or in times of need.
My proposal is to walk the West Highland Way in April 2017 so hopefully this will give lots of time to raise money for what is a worthy cause.
