Children in Need

Residents and staff in our homes were challenged to find the wackiest way to raise money for Children in Need. Here are a few of our favourites.

Kavanagh Place

Activities co-ordinator Jay Smith, was elected to take part in a Bush Tucker Trail based on the residents favourite TV show (I’m a celebrity get me outta here).  Jay  tucked into a lunch of fish eyes, meal worms, crickets and locusts.

Jay also volunteered to have hair shaved off whilst dressed as a ballerina complete with tights and tutu. He then danced around the home and made sure the residents could have a good laugh.


They raised £552

Bridgewood Mews

Heads of departments at Bridgewood Mews swapped job roles for the day.

The home manager swapped roles with the maintenance man while the admin stepped into the activities co-coordinators shoes. The home also held a bake sale with cakes   donated by the staff.


They raised £110


Residents spent the week leading up to Children in Need making Pudsey inspired wraps and eye patches for all the residents to wear and to finish the look off they had their faces painted yellow.

They raised £195


The home honoured the late Sir Terry Wogan with their friendship themed celebrations.

The activities team were inspired by the latest social media trend the Mannequin Challenge. Everyone in the home got involved in the video which showed their life in the home.


They raised £70.50

The Lodge

The home held a fancy dress competition and each staff paid £1 to take part. The home also took part in a stationary bike race to London. They cycled an amazing 157.4 miles throughout the day.

They raised £136.


Fairburn Chase

Fairburn chase decided to turn their  regular karaoke night and into a fundraising event. On Friday they held a 10 HOUR sing-a-thon.

The home raised £257.50

All together our homes raised an amazing £2239.40
