The team at a Banbury care home has raised over £1,440 for charity.
Team members at Care UK’s Seccombe Court, on Gardner Way, took part in a challenging 50km treadmill challenge, raising over £720 for Katharine House Hospice in Adderbury. Matching the teams’ efforts, Care UK also donated a further £720 to the sponsorship, bringing the total donation to £1,440.
Katharine House provides specialist palliative care for adults with life-limiting conditions across North Oxfordshire and South Northamptonshire. At Katharine House, the care is delivered by a multi-professional team who have previously specialised in this field and take a holistic approach, considering physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs.
The team set up a treadmill in the garden of the home so that residents and other team members could cheer on those walking during the challenge.
Team members that took part included: General Manager, Wojciech Kuczkowski, Deputy Manager, Monica Kowalczyk; Nurse, Gio Toscano; Maintenance Manager, Steve Kinch; Hostess, Kasia Motyjewicz, and Home Admissions Advisor, Steve Dumbrill.
The team completed the challenge in 5 hours and 50 minutes and collectively walked an impressive 51.5 kilometres.
Wojciech Kuczkowski, General Manager at Seccombe Court, said: "I am beyond proud of the team for our amazing accomplishment and are delighted Care UK matched our efforts to double our donation.
“Katherine House Hospice is a wonderful charity, and the team were keen to raise money to support them. Residents and the rest of the team have been cheering us on throughout our walk – we can’t wait to organise our next charity fundraiser!”
Designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence, Seccombe Court incorporates space for hobby and leisure activities. The home provides full-time residential care, dementia care and respite care.
