East Hill House get on their bike and step up for Sports Relief

At East Hill care home in Liss, this year for Sport Relief, we decided to do a 24hr Bike and Step challenge to raise money for this great cause.

An exercise bike was put in the main lounge and starting from midnight on the Thursday and ending midnight Friday, residents, relatives, friends and members of our team all joined in for the challenge averaging 30 minutes on the bike.

Some of our residents participated by going on walks most of the day, counting their steps as they went and they managed a massive 78,000 steps in total – amazing!

Refreshments and drinks were on hand to ensure everyone stayed well hydrated and we noticed the biscuits proved very popular.

There were also a few competitions on who had the best record in the home.

We all agreed we had so much fun together whilst also enjoying gentle exercise at the same time and were delighted when we found out we fundraised over £175.00. Well done to everyone who took part, you made this a great activity.

Sport Relief is when the British public comes together to get active, raise money and change lives and at East Hill House, we are proud to have helped in a small way to help vulnerable people, across the UK and the world, to live happier, healthier and safer lives.
