Care home staff going the mile to raise funds for charity

Droitwich Editorial 9th Nov, 2023   0

STAFF from a Droitwich care home are taking on a 30 mile running challenge this month to raise funds for charity.

Home manager, Lisa Dews, 40, and front of house manager, Carla Sidaway, 39, from Woodland View Care Home are strapping on their running shoes to raise money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Charity

The hospital treats 100,000 ill children every year and the running pair are taking on the ’30 Miles in November’ challenge to thank them for their work in caring for children and their families.

Lisa said: “One of my children is a former patient of Birmingham Children’s Hospital, they do fantastic work and offer incredible care to families in the area.

“With our residents cheering us on, we know we can tackle this challenge head on to support this very deserving charity.”

Carla added: “Our Woodland View family is always looking for ways in which we can give back to our community – if you see us out and about clocking our miles, don’t forget to say hello.”

86-year-old Woodland View resident, Rosemary Harries, is one of the pair’s supporters. Rosemary said: “I think this is for a wonderful cause. I wish both Lisa and Carla the best of luck completing their challenge. I’m sure they’ll do really well.”
