Residents and staff at Colten Care’s 20 homes in the South have raised more than £5,000 for Children in Need.

A Strictly Come Tea Dancing competition, a pyjama walkathon, a teddy bear picnic and a car wash were among the provider’s fundraising initiatives.
Other events included coffee mornings, bingo competitions, all day ‘spotty’ mufti days, raffles and quizzes.

Resident Hilda Snelling was one of the participants in the tea dance competition. She said: “It was wonderful. I used to be a professional dancer along with my husband and being up there on the dance floor was just as thrilling as it has always been.”

Fiona Pritchard, Colten Care’s Music and Arts Partner, said: “Our residents and team members really enjoy raising money for worthwhile causes. It’s a fantastic feeling to support Children in Need and so help disadvantaged children and young people in our region and across the UK.”
