Care Home Team to Walk 100k in Three Days

A team at Principle Care Homes is getting ready to walk a mammoth 100km in just three days for their chosen charity, The Together Project.

The team will be walking from their central office in Billericay, Essex, to the site of the group’s first home in Fleet, Hampshire. The walk take place over three days from 10–12 June and is the equivalent of a marathon each day.

The walk is to raise funds for The Together Project, a charity led initiative that boosts wellbeing, reduces loneliness, and fosters stronger, happier communities by creating joyful intergenerational experiences. The money raised will directly support The Together Project to continue delivering and expanding their services of intergenerational activities in care homes across the country.

Em Dean, chair of the charity committee, explains:

“As our first event for the Principle charity committee, we wanted to choose an event close to our hearts. As such the idea of walking from our office in Billericay to our first site in Fleet was formed!

“We are incredibly excited about the walk, we’ve dusted off our trainers and have been walking the streets of Billericay practicing for the event”.
