Care home staff spend day on treadmill for charity

Posted on 11 March 2011

Staff working with those paying for care at a Flintshire nursing home spent a total of 24 hours on a treadmill to raise money for charity.

The staff ensured that from 2pm one day to 2pm the next there was always someone on the treadmill in a fundraising effort for comic relief, reports the Flintshire Chronicle.

Around 20 staff from the Mold nursing home took part in the event, with one group staying up from midnight to 6am to ensure the effort was completed.

Training manager Cath Davies said: "We've had great support from residents and visitors and have had raffle prizes donated by local businesses."

"We just wanted to do something fun to raise money for Comic Relief."

This comes as residents at Westmead Care Home in Droitwich are preparing to embrace all things blue in an effort to raise awareness for prostate cancer.
