Colleagues at Workington Home Raise More Than £600 Following Walk to Maryport

Two staff members at a Workington home decided to walk from their place of work to Maryport.

Yvonne Burrows and Sharon Clarke work at MHA Amathea and raised £650 following a sponsored walk to Maryport and back.

Both colleagues work as activity coordinators and enjoyed the challenge to the point that they are keen to do it again.

The pair walked a total distance of just under 13 miles which took them around five hours.

In order to refuel themselves they stopped for a spot of lunch with lamb potatoes and lasagne on the menu.

The money raised will go towards the homes amenities fund, which is used for activities and trips for residents.

Speaking after the walk Yvonne said: “We had a great time and looking back could have walked more.

“The weather was perfect, and the walk there and back was lovely.

“We had set a target of £500 and have smashed it which was the icing on the cake.

“The support shown by the local community has been great and I want to give a special mention to Jan Chebrika, who works as a fundraiser at MHA.

“The residents are already looking forward to what we can do with the money and it’s great to have the accessibility for it.

“We are both very happy with how the event went and would be more than happy to do it again.”
