West Sussex care home staff tackle obstacle course in fundraiser for residents


Staff at a West Sussex care home have taken part in one of the country’s toughest ‘mud runs’ in a fundraiser for residents.


Charlotte Brooking, Kayleigh Stace and Sharon Walker, who work at the Shaw healthcare-run Mill River Lodge care home, in Horsham, raised over £600 when they completed the ‘Nuts Challenge’, which saw 2,000 fun-seeking competitors drenched in dirt, racing through a mud bath assault-course, packed with scramble nets, bunkers and climbing walls.

Nadine Kearney, home manager at Mill River Lodge, said: “I’m so proud of them all for even attempting the challenge, let alone completing the course and raising so much money for our residents The money raised will be used for extra activities for the residents, as well as giving our Christmas celebrations an extra boost, which they will be really pleased with”.

Despite being battered and bruised by the end of it, the staff members agreed that it was worth it and commented that they were looking forward to going back to Mill River Lodge to tell the residents all about it.
