North West home care provider, Alcedo Care Group, has expanded further in Greater Manchester, opening a new office at Beecham Court in Wigan.

The company, which now has 12 offices throughout the region, invited Alcedo Care’s sponsored Wigan Warrior rugby league player Jake Bibby to officially open the new office and meet the team.

Alcedo has a strong affiliation with Wigan as it previously had an office on Market Street and the company’s founder, Andy Boardman, was born in the town.

Further enhancing the connection with Wigan Warriors, the team at the new Alcedo office has selected Joining Jack as its chosen charity and is committed to raising as much money as they can for the worthy cause.

Jessica Armand, Alcedo’s deputy manager in Wigan, said: “When we received the keys to the office a couple of months ago, we decided to pick one local charity to support, and Joining Jack was the ideal choice. It is well established and with many of the team at the office Wigan Warrior fans, it fitted well.

“Also, the money raised by Joining Jack is used to develop research into a treatment for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a common muscle-wasting disease that affects children, mainly boys, and is terminal with a life expectancy of less than 30 years. We have a dedicated child services offering based at the Wigan office, through which we provide home care tailored packages to children Joining Jack is fighting to help, so the link with the charity made sense on all levels.”

She added: “To coincide with the official office opening, we launched our charity initiative ‘Stepcedo’, a bespoke walking challenge that the team will undertake with their clients across Wigan with the aim of reaching one million miles. We will also take part in a local 10K run next year and there will be smaller fundraising activities at the office on a regular basis.”

Jake Bibby, the Wigan Warrior who has played the most minutes and scored the most tries during the last season, said: “It was a pleasure to open the new Alcedo office in Wigan. The company is hugely supportive of the club and my career and now it has committed to raising money for Joining Jack, highlighting its generosity and commitment to the local area. It was great to meet the team and cut the blue ribbon, officially opening the office.”

Established in 2017, Alcedo Care said it has fast gained a reputation as the home care provider of choice thanks to its 700-strong team of highly skilledcarers who make a tangible difference to the quality of life of the company’s home care clients.

The company is run by husband and wife team Andy and Jo Boardman.
