Lodge Close Bring & Buy

Bank Holiday Weekend at Lodge Close, Wellington, saw yet another fund raising event for Wellington Monument. The weekends ‘Bring & Buy’ sale arranged by the tenants seemed to draw in the crowds looking for a bargain.

The National Trust began caring for Wellington Monument in 1934. Since that time it has needed careful renovation every 10 to 15 years, an expensive and unsustainable process given its height. To perform a full repair, returning the monument to the stature that was originally intended, and making this special place a more enjoyable place to visit the National Trust have a lot of work to do. They need our/your help.

Lodge Close Extra Care Housing Scheme is holding a number of fund raising events throughout the year to help raise money for the Monument renovation. Yesterday’s bring and buy sale raised total of £234 for the appeal.

Way Ahead Care has been providing care in Wellington since 1994 and are pleased to be helping the National Trust raise the much needed funds to renovate the Monument to its former glory. Way Ahead Care is also supporting the cause directly having pledged money for a ‘sponsored stone’ as part of the renovation.
