We race for life

June 5th 2013

Our Customer Advisor Stephanie McKenzie and Care UK’s Regional Manager Violet Kotu recently took on the 5km Race for Life challenge in London’s Regent’s Park.

Stephanie usually keeps fit cycling and this was her first race. She said: “It was tough going but Violet is a strong and experienced runner and she kept my spirits up and encouraged me to keep going.”

The duo raised £190 for Cancer Research and they are now applying to Care UK for an additional contribution. Stephanie said: “Everyone at the home has been very supportive and generous. We also had a collection at our latest tea dance which helped to boost out total.”
