Foundation Champion

Ann Soden
Foundation Champion

Ann Soden, a carer from Sutton Grange Care Home, won 'Foundation Champion of the Year' at the Barchester Care Awards 2017. Ann raised £600 for Barchester's Charitable Foundation after cycling 1,000 miles from Land's End all the way to John O'Groats in just 14 days, and completed the incredible feat on her own without any companions to get her through the toughest parts of the journey.

The inspirational fundraising effort attracted a lot of attention from the local press in Southport, gaining great coverage for the Foundation as well as Sutton Grange.

Ann was presented the award by our CEO, Dr Pete Calveley and Ann MacKay, Director of Policy for Care England and Trustee for the Foundation.

Congratulations Ann for your amazing achivement and for raising a fantastic amount for the Foundation!
