Chichester care home staff clown around for Comic Relief

Wellington Grange team members Clare Gibson, Emily Hudson and Carmen Flueras with resident Josie Allman.

Staff at a Chichester care home had custard pies thrown in their faces by residents to raise cash for Comic Relief.

Ten team members at Colten Care’s Wellington Grange braved the Red Nose Day challenge, raising more than £360.

Home Manager Clare Gibson said residents were only too keen to join in, adding: “It was really lovely to see staff and residents getting behind such a good cause.

“It’s not only about raising a lot of money but also having lots of fun, although I feel some residents took rather too much pleasure in ‘pieing’ some of the staff.”

Activity Organiser Emily Hudson thanked everyone who took part and said: “It was an afternoon of laughter, smiles and donations.

“Everyone was thrilled when we announced we had raised £365.69, an amazing effort.”

Colten Care has a policy of linking its 20 homes’ activities programmes with fundraising for charities chosen by residents and team members.
