'The Big Push' Wheelchair Tour Supports Southport Care Centre

ON Saturday, 14 June 2014 a wheelchair convoy from Southport's Alexandra House Care Centre will set off from Lord Street at 11am heading to Marine Lake, drawing public attention to the Care Centre facility. They also hope to raise as much money as possible to buy new equipment for the Care Centre. Patrons of public houses and hotels on the route can also expect a visit from the BEN branded 4 wheelers as they head for another local watering hole. The event will finish at 3pm.

Alexandra House is owned and operated by BEN, the automotive industry charity, and welcomes non-industry residents as well as former industry employees, their families and dependents. 'The Big Push' was suggested by Pauline Zalewski, daughter of an Alexandra House resident, who in her appreciation of the care received, was keen to raise awareness of the Centre's services and much needed funds.

The residents of the Care Centre will be pushed in the wheelchairs by Alexandra House staff, as well as family and friends; including:- Matron - Jan Habeck, Carers, Nurses, Therapists and Managers, making this a day trip with a difference!

Speaking ahead of the big day, Jan Habeck commented: "Alexandra House was recently given an Outstanding Quality Award by independent auditors and we hope 'The Big Push' will be the perfect opportunity to draw local residents' attention to the fantastic care facility they have on their doorstep." If you would like to show your support please go to:- Or for more information about Alexandra House please call:- Jean O'Donnell on 01704 543715 or send her an email:-
