You have really thought of everything. The wet room was great and we are very grateful for all the little touches. Mike and I loved the trip in the buggy to see the sunset - can't wait till next time!

Christmas is about giving

Published: 22 December, 2017

Its that time of year when we all thinking about giving and receiving gifts, here at Westward Living charity is one of the pillars of our business, we like to give back to the local community at every opportunity, we have hosted some wonderful events this year and raised fabulous amounts of money and awareness for our much loved local charities including Wings South West, North Devon Animal Ambulance, The Children's Holiday Foundation, Bideford Sea Cadets and many more.  We recently had our annual Visit England Inspection which meant that we had lots of sets of duvets to replace, so this year we chose to donate all our linen stocks to local charity Integr8 which helps clients in our local area who require bedding to keep them warm at Christmas.  Here is a lovely review from Wings South West about a recent event we hosted in the Ocean Kave our fabulous events venue at Westward Living. 

“Local Charity Wings South West approached Kathy and the team at Ocean Kave and Westward Living to help put on a special event for local young people and adults who had additional needs and attended the Wings UNITY groups.  The dream at Wings was to have a night where parents, carers and support workers would be celebrated and of course the young people and adults themselves.  Having met with Kathy ideas started to formulate on how to make the evening a night to remember, which included awards, a little gift to take home and of course the evening’s food and entertainment.  At all times the staff at Wings felt supported by Kathy and the team, but also very blessed as the venue was given for the evening free of charge.  On the night, Kathy had again exceeded our expectations and gifted each guest a handmade chocolate lollypop.  Such generosity helped Wings to put on the event so wished for, on a shoestring budget.  The team on the evening from Ocean Kave were equally easy to talk to, supported the Wings team every step of the way and interacted with the guests brilliantly.  The table decorations were beautiful large hurricane jars, filled with sand and candles which gave a softness to the venue.  Wings showed its corporate colours with soft aqua blue chair ties, again donated to Wings from Westward Living.   It truly was a night to remember and Wings is looking forward to partnering with Kathy and the team at Ocean Kave and Westward Living again in 2018 for another bigger, fabulous awards evening!”
