Last night, Ben Arbery and Louise Coles from the Almeda team were lucky enough to attend the St John’s Hospital Annual Reception. Taking place at the Gainsborough Hotel in Bath, the evening celebrated the launch of their first ever Impact Report, which Almeda are proud to have sponsored.
A rich history of helping those in need
St John’s Hospital was founded in 1174 and has therefore been positively impacting the Bath community for 842 years. They are recognised as one of Bath’s first charitable enterprises and lie at the heart of the city’s social care.
St John’s Hospital has evolved over its 8 centuries and has continually been able to help the elderly in need. It provides accommodation through its Almshouses and financial support through grants and social investment funds.
Reporting on their positive impact
St John’s Hospital’s first ever Impact Report details the positive changes that they are helping to make in the city, through helping local people and communities. The report highlights just how much St John’s care about disadvantaged people, and truly emphasises the charity’s key values of care, quality and respect.
The publishing of the Impact Report coincides with St John’s opening of a brand new community centre in Bath. ‘The Bubble’ provides activities, social gatherings and services for people aged over 55, who live in the city.
An effective partnership
Almeda are proud to have sponsored St John’s Impact Report, and to provide some facilities management solutions. By removing the hassle of administration and property management, St John’s staff have more time to focus on helping the community and making a wider positive impact in Bath.
