Barchester care home staff stride to success in charity slog
Staff from various Barchester Healthcare care homes throughout the UK have put the ‘fun’ into ‘fundraising.’
A group of employees raised over £3,000 for Barchester’s Charitable Foundation by participating in the Virgin Sport British 10K run in London earlier this month.
Violet Kotu, Jodie Ramcharitar, Natasha Lazovic, Jack Titterton, Tracy Johnston and Kerry Angeloni all completed the 10K run, with Titterton racing ahead completing the route in 49 minutes.
Henriette Dupont, grants manager for Barchester’s Charitable Foundation, said: “We are very proud of our team members who represented the charity during the London race, and ran on despite the incredible heat on the day.
“Barchester’s Charitable Foundation is a great cause that helps many people in need, and the cause is very close to the hearts of all Barchester’s staff and residents, so we feel really proud to have been able to raise this money.”
Barchester’s Charitable Foundation supports older people and other adults living with a disability by giving grants to help improve independence, mobility and quality of life.
