Staying connected to our family and friends has never been so important and at Horsfall House, we have embarked on a radical upgrade of our data network and Wi-Fi throughout the home to bring top quality connectivity to every room.
This will facilitate our GPs’ online consultations and pave the way for digital care planning by the care team. But most importantly, enable all residents and their families to link up via the internet if they so wish.
This is a large project using around 2.1k (1.3 miles) of cabling alone and some 200 man hours and comes with a significant price tag! So please give as generously as you can.
We appreciate the current pressures on families dealing with home schooling and home working but if your youngsters would enjoy creating their own fun Wi-Fi Challenge, there are lots of ideas and guidance below. There’ll be a medal for all the children and their pets involved! A big thank you from all of us at Horsfall House.

Why not support Horsfall House by joining our 500 Club?
This is a really good way of helping the work of the Charity and also gives you the opportunity to get a return on your money.
Each share costs £24 for 12 months, with a minimum commitment of one year. Payment is by Standing Order (to keep our admin costs to a minimum) and you may purchase as many shares as you wish. The prizes total 50% of the Club’s income each quarter and are apportioned as: 1st prize 27%, 2nd prize 13% and 3rd prize 10% (so prize values rise and fall with the 500 Club income).
If you would like to join, you’ll find detailed 500 Club rules, an application form and Standing Order mandate below to download and print then return to us. Or you can call Horsfall House to post these forms to you.

Draws take place quarterly after the end of February, May, August and November.

This is Bob a 14 year old Border-Yorkie who is raising money in the 2.6 Challenge to save our charities. He would normally be a regular visitor to ’Grandad Vic’ at Horsfall House.
Bob is well known in Nailsworth as the ‘dog in the sack’ as his arthritis limits him to a slow sniffing pace. But from the sack he can enjoy a panoramic view and appreciate the surprised smiles from passers by!
Bob’s challenge is on 26th April and each day of the following week: ‘Walk’ 2.6 miles in his sack, then eat 2.6 gravy bones whilst I attempt a 2.6 min Pilates Downward Dog!
