Bocking residential care homes pass the baton in Relay with Care


2Residents and staff from The New Deanery and St Mary’s Court residential care homes, in Bocking, took part in a charity relay across Essex.

The relay baton travelled across the county over five days, visiting 35 care homes along the way and was brought to The New Deanery this month. 

Resident Brenda Boley took the baton to St Mary’s Court care home and passed it to St Mary’s Court resident Sarah Crow. The baton was then transported to The Moat House care home in Great Dunmow, via the homes’ minibus which was decorated in a royal theme to continue the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations.

Jo Crosby, Head of Activities at The New Deanery and St Mary’s Court, said: “It’s always a joy to see residents and staff participating in such events. I think it was a great idea and is really nice to see all the care homes come together to raise money for charity.”

The event raised money for cancer charities including CLIC Sargent, Macmillan Cancer Support and King’s College London.
