Meadow House Team Raises Almost £2K during MS Week

An amazing week of fun and activities took place at Meadow House in Swaffham, Norfolk, as staff, residents, relatives and the local community raised an amazing total of almost £2k for research into multiple sclerosis.

Every year the Meadow House team – led by Activity Co-ordinator Jamie Smith – throw themselves into a week-long extravaganza which this year included sponsored cycling, a cold water dunk and an eating competition along with lots of fun activities for residents at the home.

There was a generous £500 donation from the Swaffham Lions’ Club.

Jamie certainly did his bit for the cause, taking part in a cold water dunking and an eating challenge where the menu included red hot hummus, haggis served with peanut butter and orange jelly with spaghetti hoops and curried custard – yum.

He said, “Multiple Sclerosis week is one which is very close to our hearts as a number of our residents here at Meadow House are living with the condition. Every year we try and do things bigger and better than the year before.

“It was an amazing week – hard work and a lot of fun, we were shown a fantastic amount of support from our relatives and the local community. We are delighted with the amount raised and grateful to the Swaffham Lions Club for their amazing donation.”

Healthcare Homes Chief Executive Gordon Cochrane attended the end of week party, spending time with the residents and accepting the cheque from Swaffham Lions Club who also attended the party.
