Donisthorpe Hall provides an individual approach to high quality elderly care in an innovative and welcoming environment

Our home is one of the finest residential and nursing care homes in the North of England. It is the only independent home of its kind to achieve CHKS accreditation as well as Hospitality Assured standard for service and business excellence.

With 183 beds including a 37-bed dementia care unit, and our own synagogue, we offer first class care in a Jewish environment.

Through money raised for Donisthorpe we are able to ensure that our residents not only live in an environment they deserve but that their lives are fulfilled, and that we are able to offer care and comfort to the elderly of the community for many years to come.

Carol HOT-COALS Whitehead Carol is the Chief Executive Officer at Donisthorpe Hall.  A qualified nurse with a degree in management and with a background in Healthcare Management both for the NHS & the independent sector Carol has managed the home for 14 years overseeing the transformation of both the environment & services into what is now one of the finest care providers in the North of England. There is now just 1 further area of the home requiring renovation and the funds that Carol raises by doing the Firewalk will be used for this purpose.

Carol is married with 3 children, 3 grandchildren and is thrilled at the prospect of the firewalk. “ This is going to take me way out of my comfort zone yet I am fascinated by the ancient ritual of the firewalk. It is also a great opportunity to raise much needed funds for the final phase of refurbishment”

Sarah SPICY Small I have a very close affinity with Donisthorpe and have been visiting my Grandpa there for the past three years and my Nana “in law” for three years before that.  It’s a fabulous place and gives our older generation independence and peace of mind in their later years.  Please dig deep and help us to make it a more wonderful place than it already is.  Our older generation need you!!!

Ashley CHARGED-UP Cohen The feedback from those that did a Firewalk earlier in the year was unbelievable, so when the opportunity came around to get involved, raise some money for the community I did not hesitate. In hindsight, with the event looming I might be beginning to regret my initial “fiery” enthusiasm. I suppose I have always had a “burning” ambition to test myself both physically and mentally. I suppose if you can’t stand the heat, don’t walk on red hot embers. I must be flaming mad!!

Hope it is a fantastic event and the whole community gets behind this opportunity to be together, inspire, and raise money for worthwhile causes.

Wayne JUMPIN’ Jackson Having been involved on the executive of Donisthorpe for several years – I was coerced into “stepping out” of my comfort zone. The mere thought of jumpin’ over hot coals might for once in my life render me speechless! I feel it is such a worthwhile cause, and hope to raise a substantial amount of money for the Home.
