Parry Family Charitable Foundation
We were delighted to receive a grant of £13,145 from the Parry Family Charitable Foundation. The funds will be used to buy a reclining bath and shower bench in our 5th residential house for people with learning disabilities and complex health needs. Building work is currently taking place at a property on Fownhope Rd, Sale to convert it into a home for up to 6 people with high needs. The purchase and conversion costs will be in the region of £1.6m
The Parry Family Charitable Foundation has longstanding links with Sale. Now based in other places around the country, some of its Board were residents here for many years. Trustee, Joanna Parry, also used to volunteer for Stockdales when she was younger.
Joanna said, “From personal experience, all our trustees knew about the excellent work the team at Stockdales do in enabling the people they work alongside to lead their lives to the full. Each and every one of us deserves the chance to live a meaningful, dignified and fulfilled life. I saw the ways in which these goals can be achieved when I was privileged to volunteer at Stockdales as a teenager. The Foundation trustees are excited to see the completed house on Fownhope Avenue but more importantly we are looking forward to meeting the people who will make this house their new home. This is the start of a long term relationship with Stockdales and we are focused on agreeing the next project with them.”
We’re delighted to have the support of the Parry Family Charitable Foundation. This is a huge help and will buy some vital pieces of equipment for our new residential house. The project is massive for Stockdales and to have this level of support is simply amazing. Big thanks to the Trustees of the Foundation for being so generous and we look forward to working with them in the future.
The new house will be a vital resource in the local area. Our other 4 homes help people with the highest needs live like everyone else. Most importantly, they are a home for life and an invaluable lifeline to countless family members too.
