Five care home workers take part in charity ramble

Five care home workers raised £300 for charity by taking part in a 17-mile ramble on Kent's North Downs.

The group, who work at the Newington Court care home, were looking to raise funds in order to help the Barchester Foundation celebrate its tenth birthday, according to an article in the Kent Messenger.

Mission organiser Geoff Pride led the expedition and was joined by volunteers along various legs on the journey.

The home, which is part of the nationwide Barchester Healthcare network, was the fourth stop on the larger 100 Mile Mission which traversed the Great North Downs, the publication notes.

Money raised will help the Barchester Foundation to continue their work allowing older people and those with disabilities to live their lives to the full.

Newington Court is located in the village on Newington on the outskirts of Sittingbourne, providing 24-hour nursing care and specialist provision for people living with dementia in the Memory Lane Community.
