Prestige Nursing Aims to Raise Over £10,000 for Charity

By wearing creative additions to their uniforms, staff at Prestige Nursing kicked off its new Charity of the Year partnership.  Prestige Nursing, a nursing and care agency franchise, is hoping to raise over £10,000 a year for the learning disability charity Mencap.

Across the UK 1,500 Prestige Nursing staff paid £1-£2 to wear hats, gloves, scarves, tiaras and feather boas in order to raise funds for the charity.  The money raised will go towards Mencap’s work providing vital support for people with a learning disability and their families and carers.

“Prestige Nursing has been working with people with a learning disability for over 60 years and so it was very fitting that our choice for our first ever Charity of the Year partnership should be Mencap, the UK’s leading charity in this sector,” says Jonathan Bruce, Managing Director at Prestige Nursing.  “Mencap’s role in supporting people with a learning disability is absolutely crucial and we are committed to raising as much money for them as we possibly can.”

Mencap Spokesperson Lloyd Page adds:  “We are very happy that Prestige Nursing is helping to raise money for Mencap.  Every penny donated will support the 1.5 million people, like me, who have a learning disability develop skills, gain confidence and become more involved in their community.  Everyone at Mencap wishes them the very best of luck.”
