In 2017 we were very pleased to be able to make our first major purchase from Betty’s Fund. Betty’s Fund began in 2010 when Betty Sheldon, who was fundamental in the setting up of Archway in the 1980’s, sadly passed away and left a legacy to Archway. Thanks to support from EnQuest, other companies, groups, families and other individuals who have been continuing to donate to this fund over the last few years and we are very pleased to be putting this fund to great use.
Betty’s Place is a wheelchair accessible holiday home located in the sunny seaside town of Nairn which was purchased for Archway service users, residents and their family members to benefit from. The holiday home is pitched on Lochloy Holiday Park in Nairn and is located right next to the beach with lots of great facilities available on site: an indoor heated swimming pool (with hoist), restaurant and lounge bar, daily entertainment and bingo, kid’s clubs, adventure playgroup, a shop and laundry.
Nairn is a lovely seaside town and a popular holiday destination. Visitors can enjoy the sandy beaches, riverside walks, boat trips from the harbour, walks along the promenade with fantastic views over the Moray Firth and plenty of places to eat and drink nearby. There is a large supermarket nearby as well as several smaller shops including a post office, GP surgery and a chemist.
The holiday home comprises of 2 bedrooms with 2 single divan beds in each room, a spacious lounge with a double pull out sofa bed, dining area with free standing dining table and chairs, fully equipped kitchen with fridge freezer, microwave, gas hob and oven, a spacious wet room which includes an accessible toilet, sink and level access shower.
