Moors Manor Care Home Team Take on Sponsored Walk on National Walking Day

Staff from Moors Manor Care Home in St Leonards are taking on a 12 mile walk from their sister home in Hamworthy to raise money for Helpful Hounds Assistance Dogs, with residents having their own mini challenge at the home.

On Wednesday 6th April, which is also National Walking Day, Tracey Aldin, General Manager, will lead a team from the home on a route from Upton Bay care home, passing through stop off points including Dorset Chamber and Kings Park Care home to raise money for our residents chosen charity – Helpful Hounds Assistance Dogs. The tour will starts at 8am in Hamworthy and finish at 4pm at our home, Moors Manor. Whilst the team are out doing their walk, residents and staff at the home will be doing their own walking challenge around the garden to mimic the route.

The homes will be raising money for the charity, who help to change the lives of young people to enable a greater quality of life and more independence. We would welcome you to cheer us along on route, we are getting back into the home at 4pm on 6th April where we will be greeted by some representatives from the charity and enjoy some much needed refreshments in the garden.

General manager, Tracey Aldin said: “It is going to be a long and tiring day but we’re all really excited to take part and we’re hoping to raise lots of money. We know all the staff, residents, relatives and visitors will get behind us at each of the homes along the way. We’d like to thank everyone who has helped us so far, it has been a real team effort.”
