A hair-raising initiative was among the activities at Ponteland Manor Care Home to raise money for the British Heart Foundation (BHF).
Activity co-ordinator Emma Garside and assistant Caiti Bayles organised different events where residents could get involved and staff could join in during the charity’s Wear it – Beat it month.
The biggest and most popular fund-raiser was maintenance man Alan Musgrave having his legs waxed for the charity. Others included a raffle, coffee morning and a wear red to work day.
Area manager Dan McNally from the BHF recently went along to the care home to collect a cheque for £300 from some of the staff.
