Last Tuesday afternoon, February 9th, SC Johnson entertained a group of elderly guests including a contingent of Camberley Care clients at their Frimley premises. Tea and cakes were served and games of Bingo were played. All the guests left with a “goody bag” of Johnson products.
Many Johnson employees attended to ensure that a most pleasant time was had by all.
Many thanks to SC Johnson for their hospitality and for their great support of the local community.
Thank you very much to Nationwide and their customers for voting to support Camberley Care as their local charity. Winning charity in our area! Your support helps us to continue our subsidised Care and Repair and Care Cars services. Your help is really appreciated 🙂

Please join me in wishing Andy congratulations on a successful first day today as Camberley Care’s new handyman.
He says of this appointment;
“After leaving the army in 1992 I worked for Surrey Heath Borough Council for 17 1/2 years within the facilities management team, providing all sorts of things to ensure that the town hall ran smoothly, five years ago I was made redundant from the council and started working for Voluntary Services Surrey Heath as their community development officer. We then merged approximately three years ago with Runnymead to become Voluntary Support North Surrey, supporting local organisations and charities within the borough of Surrey Heath and Runnymead, my role included web design and social media and working in areas of deprivation with in both boroughs. I enjoyed my time with Voluntary Support North Surrey, and learnt many new skills. But my heart has always been with facilities and maintenance, I look forward to working with Camberley Care providing the Handyman service to all residents within the borough.”
I hope he enjoys his time with our lovely little charity 🙂
