Care home manager bathes in beans for Children In Need 

November 18th 2016

i-choosing-and-funding-care-flippedThe Potteries home manager spent the afternoon in a bath of beans on Friday 18th November, to raise money for Children In Need.

Zita Turner took on the messy challenge to raise over £100 for the national charity.

Zita was nominated by colleagues to spend one hour in a bath full of cold baked beans, which used 80 tins to fill it.

Talking about the experience, Zita said: “We’re always thinking of creative and different ways to raise money for charity here at The Potteries and - not one to shy away from something a bit different – I thought a bath of beans would be the perfect way to encourage people to dig deep for a fantastic cause!

“I would like to say a big thank you to the residents, family and visitors who have sponsored me so far. While the baked beans bath wasn’t the most pleasant experience, it was worth every penny – although - I was much happier to hop into a lovely hot shower afterwards!”
