Friends of Elizabeth House
Who are we?
A group of volunteers
dedicated to raising funds to
enrich the lives of the
residents at Elizabeth House.
We want to enhance the
residents' provision in the care
home by fund raising and
voluntary activities.
We've been established since
2012 and organise various
activities for the residents like
bingo and a monthly tea
room. We have a website
that is regularly updated.
Please visit to see what's on,
details below.
Many of our volunteers have
family or have had family
living at Elizabeth House.
We understand that moving a
loved one to Elizabeth House
is a huge change for everyone.
We're here to help you feel
settled and supported.
We're always looking for
help, so if you'd like to get
involved please contact us,

We’re also always looking for
new ideas and if anyone
knows any entertainers that
would like to come and put on
a show for our residents
please let us know. We’d love
to hear from you.
Welcome back to our second Friends

want to use this as an opportunity to
let you know about us and what

Events June – September
It’s been a busy summer with lots
going on.
We held our usual monthly tea
rooms on the first Saturday of each
month. The cakes were lovely and
very popular with both residents and
We held an amazing BBQ in July,
there was singing, a bouncy castle,
delicious food and fun had by all.
Oh we do like be beside the sea side,
Oh we do like to be beside the

enjoyed a trip to Southend. They
enjoyed fish and chips and views of
the sea.
There were other trips to
Stockwood Park too.

We’ve purchased new cushions for the
outside seats and storage units.

Leaves are floating
softly down;
Some are red and
some are brown.
The wind goes "swish"
through the air;
When you look back,
there are no leaves there
