Green Pastures is run on a not-for-profit basis and aims to provide high quality nursing care to the elderly at realistic prices. In order to achieve this, we rely on the generosity of our supporters.
New building fundraising
During the build phase of our new home, the trustees are fundraising so that the bank loan that we have been offered to make this new building possible is as low as possible. All donations, small or large, will be used to fund the building, equipping and staffing of the new home.
For more information about the project, please visit the New building page.
If you are a UK Tax payer and are able to Gift Aid your donation, the Government will donate a further 25% to the project.
The Shepherd’s Purse Fund
This fund exists to top-up the fees of state-funded residents who are unable provide the extra finances needed themselves.
The catalyst for establishing the fund was an elderly lady who really wanted to spend her final days in the home, but lacked sufficient funding to do so. Sadly, she died elsewhere, and one of her final wishes was denied her. This so moved the board of Green Pastures that the fund was set up to meet such needs.
The state is now offering £259 per week less than was being provided ten years ago. In that time, we have seen large increases in costs - including regulation, DBS checks, minimum wage, holiday entitlement, gas and electricity as well as everyday items like food.
If you are a UK Tax payer and are able to Gift Aid your donation, the Government will donate a further 25%.
Making a bequest in your will is one of the most popular and easiest ways to leave a gift. To include Green Pastures in your will we suggest the following wording may be used:
“I give £... to the Green Pastures Shepherd’s Purse Fund for the financial support of residents who do not have the resource to pay top-up fees."
