Colleagues at Mountfitchet House get on their bike for charity

Home news

Care UK colleagues at the Mountfitchet House care home on Coltsfield in Stansted Mountfitchet got on their bikes to raise funds for Sport Relief.

Throughout the day, members of the Mountfitchet House team took it in turns to ride a stationary bike.  Over a total of eight hours they pedaled 68 kilometers and raised £194 for the charity, cheered on by residents who were sitting in the care home’s café.

Home manager, Allison Squires, said:  “The Sport Relief fundraiser created a fantastic atmosphere in the home.  Everyone enjoyed showing their support for those who took to the bikes, and residents had a lovely impromptu sing-along which sounded amazing as it echoed around the reception area.  It was a great day and we were thrilled to raise money for such a good cause.”  

Sport Relief is a national charity initiative from the same team as Comic Relief.  Of all the money raised, 50 per cent is used to make a difference in the UK and 50 per cent goes towards transforming lives across the world’s poorest communities.
