Companions

The Companions of Knellwood are a group of volunteers, run by a committee, to raise funds for the residents of Knellwood.
We are completely independent of the Home but work closely with the Manager and the Bursar.

We hold several events throughout the year which are all held in either the home or its grounds. They are normally:

  • Easter Bazaar
  • Band Concert
  • Open Day & Fete
  • Oddfellows Concert
  • Christmas Bazaar

Over the years we have provided a variety of items for the home, ranging from a television for the lounge, to specialised beds. This is to make the residents’ stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, as well as funding trips to the theatre, meals out at Christmas and Christmas presents.

If you would like to become a Companion please contact me.  All we ask for is a small donation each year, the amount of which is entirely at your discretion, or better still, we are always looking for new committee members to join us. It does if you think you have nothing to offer; our experience tells us that you will.
