Parish Nurse Update 13/05/2018

Parish Nurse for St Goran, St Just, and St Michael Caerhays

The PCC at St Goran is embarking on an ambitious project which we hope will be of benefit to the whole community. Our vision is to provide a Parish Nurse to help people in this community achieve optimum health and wellbeing. The Parish Nurse will be employed, initially for 2 days per week for 3 years. To achieve this we will need to raise the necessary funds.

The Parish Nurse will be employed by the PCC of St Goran. The parish nursing service is recognised and supported by Parish Nursing Ministries UK (PNMUK). The Parish Nurse will be a registered nurse and will attend regular courses provided by PNMUK working towards full accreditation.

At the PCC meeting on 3 May it was reported that the funds raised were £50,011 which was over our target of £49,500. We could therefore go ahead with advertising for a Parish Nurse.

£5,755 has been given or pledged by individuals locally, which is amazing, and the balance is from charitable trusts, the diocese, the county council, gift aid and £3,000 from St Goran Church.

 

There are more details of this exciting project under the "Parish Nurse" tab on this web site, including details of the separate bank account that has been set up to administer the financial aspects of this venture. 

 

If you would like to support the Parish Nurse and have not yet given, your donations would be much appreciated as we hope to continue this work after the initial three years. We already have three kind standing orders and St Goran Church has set aside £7,000 for the future.

 

If you think you can help in that way please download the form on the link below and use it to set up a Standing Order or for a one-off donation.
