Hilltop Manor Care Home in Tunstall held a sponsored 'Face Your Fears' event and raised over £300 towards building a new sensory garden for residents to enjoy.
Senior Care Assistant Joyce Hodgkinson took part by getting up close with a large snake - even going as far as to having the creature wrapped around her neck!
Meanwhile CHAP Annette Ramsden faced her fears by allowing a hairy tarantula to crawl across her hands and arms!
Home Manager Rebecca Mackenzie said:
"We're so proud of Joyce and Annette and the sum they have raised through their bravery is sensational - it will really help in our efforts to provide our residents with a wonderful sensory garden this summer."
