Staff take to the saddle for Save the Children!
Staff from local care homes Oak Manor and Sanford House joined forces and donned their cycling gear on Friday 13th April to raise money for Save the Children.
Friends, relatives and local shoppers gave their support as the group showed off their pedal power at the Morrisons store in Dereham, raising over £200 throughout the day.
Sanford House Manager Joan Auton said:
“We’re so delighted the bike ride was such a success and touched by the generosity of the local community. Raising money for a cause as important as Save the Children makes all the hard work and aching legs worthwhile!”
Sanford House and Oak Manor are run by the family-owned Caring Homes Group, which has care homes across the UK.
The two homes provide residential, nursing and specialist dementia care near Dereham in Norfolk. Mother and son team Helena and Paul Jeffery founded Caring Homes in 1994 and the Group has grown to become a leading independent care provider in the UK.
Paul Jeffery, Chief Executive Officer for Caring Homes, said:
“Our staff are passionate about providing support for a charities close to their hearts. Events like the static bike ride are an excellent way to raise money to help so many children through hunger and ill health.”
