Midford Manor Team Climb 80ft Crane in Aid of Dorothy House

Brave care workers at Midford Manor, our new care home being built on Frome Road, have climbed its 80ft crane in aid of Dorothy House.

General Manager, Carol Britton and Commissioning Manager, Jenny Mann raised £615 for the hospice which works with the Bath community to develop, influence and provide responsive palliative care and end of life care.

The “daring duo”, climbed the cranes 10 ladders, despite their immense fear of heights to support the hospice after seeing the vital services they provide to the Bath community.

Carol Britton said: “As the wind got up and I felt the ladder wobble I really didn’t know if I could do it! But fighting back my nerves I got to the top with sheer determination not wanting to let anyone down who has supported me on this journey. I’m so pleased to have been able to make it despite my fears – which have definitely not gone away. To hear the cheers from my friends and family watching really got me through!”

Jenny Mann added:
“We’re delighted to have raised £615 for Dorothy House and we would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone in the local community who has generously supported and encouraged us to face our fears. Dorothy House does such wonderful work locally and every donation received really makes a difference.”

Community and Events Fundraiser at Dorothy House Hospice Care, Emily Aspin said: “Everyone at Dorothy House is incredibly impressed with Carol and Jenny for boldly climbing the 80-foot crane at Midford Manor and raising a fabulous £615. What an epic feat for the local charity! The money raised by this epic duo will help fund essential patient care in the community and means the world to the hospice’s patients, their families and carers.”
