Care workers and their friends and families are being asked to ‘go the extra mile’ to raise funds for charity.
The Care Workers Charity is asking colleagues and teams to earn as many points as they can through physical and mental health activities on the Kaido Wellbeing app between 20 July and 14 August.
Emily Barnett, Partnership and Events Manager at The Care Workers’ Charity, said: “Our Around the World campaign is all about encouraging care workers and their friends and families to get involved in a fun challenge which will help improve participant’s mental and physical health.
“COVID-19 has placed an immense amount of pressure on care workers up and down the country. We hope that this campaign will not only draw in funds to continue our work, but act as an enjoyable antidote to the stresses and strains of the current epidemic.”
To participate, each team should register at https://kaido.org/start/128637695 and nominate a team leader by 20 July. Once a team has registered, other individuals can be invited to join.
The Care Workers’ Charity is also asking each team to set up their own JustGiving page via the charity’s ‘Around the World’ page: https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/cwcaroundtheworld. To do this, teams should click ‘Start Fundraising’ on the right-hand side of the page, with a suggested target of £300 for each team.
If you have any questions or queries, please feel free to contact Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org”.
The challenge is being sponsored by Avery Healthcare, Cinnamon Care Collection and Oakland Care.
