Care UK’s Salisbury Manor, on Shapland Close, presented Your Salisbury Pantry and Alzheimer’s Support Salisbury with a £250 cheque each.
Your Salisbury Pantry, set up to provide affordable and nutritious food to local residents, grew from a food support project launched during the pandemic in 2020, originally running out of Salisbury City Council’s Community Centres.

Alzheimer's Support supports people who are living with dementia in their own homes, helping them to maintain as much independence and control over their lives as possible.
Salisbury Manor wanted to donate to its neighbours to make an impact within the local community.
The home has recently undergone a £1.7m renovation which included complete redecoration of all communal areas with new dining rooms, reconfiguration of the suites to enable residents living with dementia safe outside space, and the construction of large specialist rooms for residents requiring end of life care to allow families to stay.
The re-opening of the care home in July will also bring 85 jobs to the area including, housekeeping and nursing jobs.
Skye Williams, General Manager at Salisbury Manor, said: “We’re very pleased to be able to donate funds to two very deserving local charities.
“We know just how important local groups are, especially when it comes to raising awareness of dementia within the local community and supporting those living with the condition. Their mission completely aligns with ours, and we’re excited to explore further opportunities to work together to create a more dementia-friendly community right here in Salisbury.
“We also know that current cost of living crisis means that many people are struggling to put food on the table, which is why we felt it was so important to support Your Salisbury Pantry who provide vital support to many people in our community.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming both charities back to Salisbury Manor again once we open our doors.”
