Thank you to all those volunteers, donors and shredders who came out to our 2nd Annual Shred a Thon for Broadmead Care! We raised over $10,000 with thanks to an anonymous generous donor to help us reach our goal. Thanks go out to the members of MARPAC, Sea Cadets, and Claremont High School and especially our Broadmead Care Board and Staff for braving the weather and volunteering their time! Thanks also to the Broadmead Village retailers who supported our endeavour especially Menchie's Yoghurt and Heirloom Linens! And our dear friends at Island Document Storage and Shredding for the hard work! Please watch the story on CHEK News!
Thank you for your generous donation in 2013! Your donation helps give your WWII and Korea War veterans the care and comfort they need in their final years. Your donation also helps give comfort and care to our adults with disabilities at Nigel and Harriet House.

Thank you Royal Oak Lions and Shaw Cable!
The Royal Oak Lions have been providing Christmas cheer to the residents at the Lodge at Broadmead each year by putting up the lights outside the building. These festive lights signify the start of the Christmas season and we are so grateful for their continued support for over thirty years! This year, our friends at Shaw Cable joined the festive light up by bringing their bucket truck to place lights on the big tree outside the entrance of the Lodge. It is a marvelous site and we hope you have a chance to drive by for a look! Thank you to the Royal Oak Lions and Shaw Cable for lighting up Christmas at the Lodge at Broadmead!
