The special evening event hosted and organised by CelebFC Karin Flower also celebrated the five year anniversary of CelebFC helping small charities raise money through celebrity football matches. A impressive silent auction with a special appearance by current DJ Pied Piper was also revealed - this included guests from the sporting industry and reality TV all donating their time in making the event a huge success.
Patrick Connery who sadly passed away two weeks ago, accompanied his daughter Jayne to all Care Campaign for the Vulnerable Gala events.
Jayne Connery Founder of Care Campaign said ‘ It was with great sadness I lost my father recently and without doubt he was my biggest supporter. All of these events my Dad accompanied me. I know he would have wanted me to attend this gala in aid of Care Campaign for the Vulnerable. I would like to thank Karin Flower Founder of CelebFC who I first met when she contacted me regarding concerns with her mum’s care. It soon developed into a ‘meeting of minds’ and Karin is a huge supporter to Care Campaign and I am truly grateful - not just for her support but friendship also”.

The award was proudly accepted by Amy’s mum Christina Graham. Jayne said on presenting the Award 'Our work is very much about raising awareness to the much needed change in the sector and we get to see the sometimes negative side of the car sector. I can honestly say families who contact us about inadequate care of loved ones rarely blame the care staff. In fact many say that if it wasn't for the dediation and committment of many carers their loved ones would have suffered even more. I am delighted to present this Award to Amy. She is a very deserving winner.
Amy was unable to make the Gala, eventually receiving her Outstanding Care Award and £500 cash prize
'' I am grateful so many people are as passionate as I am regarding our vulnerable and good dedicated Carers being safeguarded and protected in care homes. Our CCTV initiative is certainly gaining much momentum and I can’t thank everyone enough for the help and support given to Car Campaign for the Vulnerable. I know my Dad would be very proud, as I am. ‘’.
British Actress Aimi Macdonald is Care Campaign for the Vulnerable Ambassador - raising public awareness for better, safer, transparent care within the care sector.
I am delighted to be invited as a Ambassador to assist in this wonderful campaign instigated by Jayne Connery regarding CCTV security in care homes throughout the UK. This, I feel, will benefit carers, staff, residents and their families in the event of any dispute. As a relative of someone suffering with Alzheimers disease I have been involved with care homes over the last ten years and I feel the knowledge I have can contribute to this very important initiative
Adventure with Dementia provide values-based learning, development and improvement programmes which include life elements relevant to us all irrespective of a diagnosis of disease or disability. Our approach is that of doing 'with' people and not doing 'for' them thus creating family style daily living which is occupied, meaningful and fulfilled while also challenging the stereotypes of a carers role to empower them to do things differently: pledging to make a difference.Visit Website
