The St.Ives Day Care Centre is run by a small team of dedicated, committed staff and much valued, caring volunteers and is funded by charging a small attendance rate for members, but is also dependent on much appreciated donations and fund raising events organised by the staff, committee, volunteers as well as the members and their relatives.
Examples of how donations / funds may be spent include:
- A £20 donation provides entertainment for one afternoon.
- A £30 donation maintains the Day Care Centre minibus for one week providing essential transport for members to/from the Centre.
- £100 donation provides specialist training for staff and volunteers to enable them to keep up to date with all health and safety requirements as well essential care advice.
