Here is a letter of thanks from the chair of the Society:
Dear Mr Crutchett,
I was extremely pleased to learn that the Company of Actuaries has donated to the Abbeyfield Beaconsfield Society 5000 pounds towards our Activity Centre Expansion Project. On behalf of my fellow trustees as well as the managers of the Home, I should like to express our gratitude for your help.
Here at Bradbury House, we are very excited about our project which will enable us to share our facilities with a greater number of the elderly in our local community. We firmly believe that as the trend grows for the elderly to remain in their own homes later in life than ever before, facilities such as our Activity Centre will increase in importance. Your very generous award will be of great assistance in ensuring that we furnish and equip our Centre to the highest standard.
Suffice to say, we will be keeping your organisation up to date with the project as it develops and very much looking forward to welcoming you or any of your colleagues to visit us when the work is complete.
With best wishes,
(Chairman of Trustees, the Abbeyfield Beaconsfield Society).
