Residents at a Thetford care home are set to enjoy a rejuvenated garden after staff raised £1,000 during a sponsored walk.
Alexander Court Care Home’s team undertook an 18-mile sponsored walk to raise money for new garden furniture and a gazebo, creating a new environment for all to enjoy, not matter the weather. Although the outdoor space is lovely, the staff wanted to go ‘the extra mile’ to make it even better.
A dozen members of staff spent the day on foot starting at the care home in Thetford and ending their travels in the ancient town of Brandon, walking through the dense forests and crossing over the river Little Ouse.
Pat Collins, manager at Alexander Court care home, said: “The 18-mile walk was an unforgettable adventure, but it is all worthwhile to enrich the lives of our residents.
“It’s great to see how many members of the team took part, and it highlights how much we care about the wellbeing of the people we look after.
“I look forward to see how the outdoor space will be transformed and see how much our residents and their families enjoy it.”
