Nursing home staff put best feet forward to fund a festive treat
Staff at a nursing home are going that extra mile to make sure residents enjoy a Christmas treat. Downham Grange maintenance man Adam Titcombe, 30, head chef Natalie Morton, 38, and senior carer Mandy Munden, 35, will be completing a 13-mile walk on Saturday, October 29 to raise funds for a residents’ outing to the King’s Lynn Corn Exchange’s seasonal pantomime Cinderella. And to give their sponsored event a fun twist, they are appealing to anyone who can supply them with Cinderella outfits to wear.
The trio, who will be cheered off from the home in Clackclose Road, Downham Market by staff and residents, estimate it will take them about three hours 45 minutes to finish their walk to King’s Lynn train station. Mr Titcombe, an employee at the Kingsley Healthcare-run home for five years, said: “I have already raised nearly £200 in sponsorship and Natalie and Mandy have also been busy looking for sponsors. Anyone who wants to sponsor us or is able to help with costumes can make contact by ringing me at the home on 01366 387054.”
The sponsored walk will be the second event organised by the new residents’ fundraising committee spearheaded by Mr Titcombe. A yard sale is being held at 9am on Saturday selling off items from the home, including art and ornaments. Click here to find more about Downham Grange nursing home in Downham Market, Norfolk
