Athena Care Homes has raised over £1,600 for the National Activity Providers Association (NAPA) through a series of well-being walks.
The care provider’s homes took on a variety of challenges in the middle of May to get their residents moving and improve their physical, psychological well-being, while raising money for a charity which supports activity and well-being across social care.
Amberley Hall in King’s Lynn had a great time taking on indoor circuits with hoola-hooping, indoor badminton, bowling, target practice and more. Ashlynn Grange in Peterborough took on similar challenges, but made a day of inter-community games with a torch ceremony and cake auction.
While Avocet Court in Ipswich tackled circuits around the home and gardens and Aria Court residents in Cambridgeshire braved the weather to complete various walks around the home and local parks.
The Central Support Team, meanwhile, took on a collective walk equivalent to the 103 miles from head office in Essex to Amberley Hall, to Athena Care Homes’ farthest flung home in Norfolk.
Managing Director, Mala Agarwal, told CHP: “I’m extremely proud of the efforts of all of our homes and teams. We love creating and participating in events that are accessible to everyone, including our local communities.
“These events not only bring such fun to our residents’ lives, but they improve and enhance wellbeing, health and fitness. To be able to do that whilst raising funds to support NAPA, an organisation which brings something unique to everyone in our industry, is a great privilege.”
