41 staff and relatives at Balhousie Care Group, a leading Scottish care provider with 25 residential care homes across the North East, have raised over £1000 for the Resident’s Comfort Fund with a hike up Glen Clova on Saturday 4th June.
With Saturday’s heat making conditions tough, the group completed the 10 mile-round climb, ‘bagging’ both Mayar and Driesh Munro’s along the way. The hike rounds off a week of fundraising activities at Balhousie Care Group as Dementia Awareness Week, organised by Alzheimer Scotland, comes to an end.
Staff organised the fundraising effort in support of their Together We’re Great initiative, which focusses on how staff, residents and the wider community can come together and go that extra mile, to create exceptional care across all 25 of Balhousie’s Care Homes.
Louise Barnett, Operations Director at Balhousie Care Group commented:
“Everyone at Balhousie is exceptionally proud of those who took part in Saturday’s Munro Hike and I’m thrilled by the fantastic effort from those who took part. The money raised will provide residents with the chance to do something special – whether it be a day out or fish suppers all round! We look forward to seeing them enjoy whatever they chose to do with the money raised.”
