Staff of Edward Moore House Residential Home challenged themselves to a sponsored walk, to raise money for the residents of the home.
Feeling inspired by the long summer days, staff of the Trinity Road residential care home decided to challenge themselves to a fundraising walk, in hope of raising some money, which would enable their residents to enjoy a summer day out at the seaside.
The group of hikers successfully completed 10 laps of the running track adjacent to the Gurdwara Sikh Temple, which sits directly opposite the care home on Trinity Road. The group managed to raise £500, which will contribute to the residents’ seaside day out.
The idea for a charity fundraiser was born when activity coordinator, Christine, began thinking about fun ways to raise money and bring the staff closer together at the same time.
Chris Hutchinson, home manager of Edward Moore House commented: “I’d like to say well done to everyone who get involved with the sponsored walk, they did an excellent job and the money raised will help a great deal with the costs of upcoming outings.
“We take residents on regular daytrips but as we are a charity or budget isn’t endless, so it’s always very helpful and greatly appreciated when we receive support for these kinds of things.”
