Colleagues and residents at Exemplar Health Care’s Tipton care home, Bridgewood Mews fundraised throughout May and raised an astonishing £1,000 in aid of Huntington’s Disease Association (HDA).
Exemplar Health Care, one of England’s leading complex needs care home providers, supports adults living with a range of complex and high acuity needs, including Huntington’s Disease. Residents at Bridgewood Mews tackled activities which included walking 12,000 steps a day, climbing Clent Hills, completing a zip wire excursion, and climbing Mount Snowdon.
Kerri Towey, Clinical Nurse Manager at Bridgewood Mews, says: “We’re extremely proud of our residents for taking on these challenges to raise money for such a great cause – one that’s very close to all of our hearts. This was a great way to raise money for a very worthy charity while also supporting our residents to do what they love. We’re really thankful to everyone who has donated and helped us reach our £1,000 target, it means the world to us!”
The donation to HDA will support the charity’s continued work in helping those living with Huntington’s Disease, as well as providing genetic counseling to family members. HDA uses its national network to help best support those living with Huntington’s Disease to live a better life.
