The Companions of Knellwood are volunteers, run by a committee, who raise funds for the residents of Knellwood.
We are completely independent of the Home but work closely with the General and Finance Managers.

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 Fayre

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, birthday 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. If don’t think you have anything to offer – you do!

The Companions have recently purchased and donated 52 small fleece throws in a variety of colours.  They will be distributed once each one has a resident’s name on them.

They have also donated six sets of digital kitchen scales which will be useful for cake baking.

If anyone would like to support the Companions with a donation, or would like to volunteer at future events, please contact Dave Tunnicliffe. (See above for contact details.)
