Two members of the team at Willow Lodge Care Home in North Shields recently took part in the Great North Run in order to raise funds for the home.
Nikki, Care Assistant, and her sister Gemma, Personal Activities Leader, both ran the half marathon to help raise money for a minibus for the home so they can go on more days out with the residents. After completing the challenge they were both able to get dressed up and celebrate their fantastic achievements.
Lindsay Johnson, Home Manager, told us: "The girls were incredible, they both worked with training as well as their work here at Willow Lodge. They did a fantastic job and raised a great amount of money that will help us in getting a minibus for the home. It's so lovely to have these girls as part of the team - a huge well done to you both!"
