A North Shields care home has ‘come to the rescue’ to help disadvantaged children in the region.
As part of Metro Radio’s Cash for Kids initiative, members of staff at Prince’s Court care home raised £150 as they dressed as superheroes for the day, ranging from Batman and Catwoman to The Flash and Wonderwoman.
The home, which is based on Hedley Road, also held a coffee morning, which contributed to the amount raised.
Prince’s Court care home provides nursing care for up to 75 elderly residents, some of whom also need dementia care.
Nicola Coulson, home manager, said: “We are committed to helping out the community and local charities, so it was great to get involved with the Cash for Kids initiative, which was enjoyed by all of our staff and residents.
“I am delighted with our fundraising efforts and hopefully the money raised by the home can go towards helping disadvantaged children in the area.”
