A community of residents and staff at a Derbyshire care home has completed 100 Pudsey bear-pees to raise money for BBC Children in Need.
Inspired by celebrity trainer, Joe Wicks, the team at Sanctuary Care’s The Park Residential and Nursing Home donned Pudsey ears and t-shirts to take on the fundraising challenge and support projects and charities across the UK.
The team at the not-for-profit care home in Chaddesden, which provides residential, nursing, dementia and respite care for 42 elderly residents from the local community, is aiming to raise at least £100 by completing 100 bearpees in a month.
The challenge was organised by Juliet Gardner, manager of the Sanctuary Care home, who said:
“It’s been great for our residents and team to get involved with fundraising for Children in Need. Everyone embraced the bearpees challenge and gave it their all.
“Children in Need is a charity close to our hearts. As a not-for-profit care home, we are passionate about enriching the lives of those living within our community, as well as of our residents and team.
“Working together to meet our fundraising goal has given our residents and colleagues a fantastic sense of achievement, which we know is so important to feel happy and fulfilled.”
Ruth White, 55, commented: “It was really great to do a little bit of exercise for a good cause. Hopefully, the money we raise will make a difference to help a child or young person in need.”
