    • Barclay's Bank volunteer at St Stephen's Care Home

      A team of employees from Barclays Bank recently took part in a volunteering challenge at St Stephen's Care Home in Cheshire. The team, from the bank’s IT Department, decided to try their hand a something a little more creative when they designed and built a 1930’s reminiscence room for residents...

      “Every year 50,000 staff from Barclays get the chance to take part in community fundraising and volunteering projects,” explains Barclays IT Manager and Project Team Leader, Leanne Dow. “Each team choose their own cause, but the aim is always to help out on a project which will make a real and lasting difference.”

      “We thought long and hard about what we could do to make our mark on St Stephens and came up with the idea of creating a reminiscence room for residents to relax in with family and friends,” she continues.  “So, armed with rolls of vintage-style wallpapers, antique furniture, a sewing machine and lots of lovely fabrics, we set about transforming an ordinary sitting room into a step back in time!”

      The results of the team’s hard work are truly amazing, delighting residents and staff alike: “The work the Barclays team have done for us is terrific and everyone at St Stephens is so thrilled with it,” says Home Manager, Cindy Southhall. “Residents now use the new room to sit with family and friends, listening to the radio or just having a cup of tea. As well as being a real talking point, all the old fashioned memorabilia is really comforting to residents, stirring fond memories of years gone by.”
