Staff from Barchester Healthcare’s care homes up and down the country are taking on a gruelling 211-mile cycling challenge from Bradford to London to raise money for Barchester’s Charitable Foundation.
The Foundation supports older people and other adults living with a disability or mental health problems by helping them to connect or re-connect with others in their local communities.
Over four days, from July 5 to 8, a team of care home workers will cycle from Yorkshire to London, stopping at 15 care homes and one hospital across all four of Barchester’s divisions to meet well-wishers, have a well-earned break, and refuel before continuing on their way.
On July 8 at 3 pm the tour will stop at Magnolia Court where the home will be offering refreshments and holding a garden party to help raise funds. People are welcome to come along to the home to show their support.
You can donate to the challenge here.
Octavian Stanciu, the general manager, said: “It is going to be a long and tiring four days in the saddle for all concerned which is why we’re asking our local community to come down and support the team on the day – we’re hoping to raise lots of money for some great causes.
“We know all the staff, residents, relatives, and visitors will get behind the team at each of the homes along the way. We’d like to thank everyone who has helped so far, it really has been a real team effort.”
