Mar 2019: Baycroft Great Baddow shortlisted for Pinders award

Care, Health, Great Baddow

Baycroft Great Baddow has been selected as a finalist in the Best New Care Home category of the care home ‘Oscars’, the Pinders Healthcare Design Awards, which comes with a £500 donation for a local charity. Baycroft chose to support The J’s Hospice.

Sophie Baker, Sales and Marketing Manager at Baycroft, said:
“Everyone at Baycroft is delighted that our success will help such an important local charity to the community of Chelmsford and beyond. Baycroft and The J’s are both dedicated to giving people and their families the best care and quality of life at the most difficult time so it makes sense to support them.”

Zoe Butler, Community Fundraiser at The J’s said: “We cannot thank Baycroft enough for thinking of us as their chosen charity, their continued support since 2016 has provided The J’s with much needed funding to continue our care. The J’s provides hospice and respite care for young adults aged 16-40 living with the life limiting and life-threatening conditions across Essex and their families. This £500 donation really will make a huge difference to our patients and their families, we really appreciate it.
