Determined care workers at Midford Manor, our new care home being built on Frome Road walked 20 miles in aid of Julian House.
General Manager, Carol Britton took part in the Circuit Walk alongside her six of her team and raised £2,000 for the charity which provide homeless services and accommodation, domestic abuse services, criminal justice, and employment support across the South West.
Our dedicated team, took on the gruelling challenge on the outskirts of the city, despite their little training after seeing the vital services they provide to the Bath community.
Carol Britton said: “Although it was one of the hardest challenges I have ever undertaken, the thought of those people who are homeless on the streets of Bath are dealing with challenges every minute of every day –propelled me to complete the 20 miles, aching limbs and sore feet at the end but a real sense of satisfaction and thrilled at the money we as a team has raised for such a worthy cause!
Gavin Osborn, Community & Events Fundraiser for the charity said “The walk is now in its 21st year and still going strong, bringing the community together. It’s wonderful to see teams like Midford Manor taking on the challenge for the first time, knowing that every penny they raise will ultimately save lives. They’ve set up a Just Giving page and are working really hard to raise as much as they can, all of which will go towards our work with vulnerable and at-risk adults across the South West.”
