Fit Feb for St Barnabas House.

Valerie Manor and Head Active have done an amazing job already nearly two weeks into the Fit Feb challenge by raising £725 for St Barnabas. It would be lovely to get to £1000 by the 14th February halfway! As you can see our residents are also thoroughly enjoying the challenge too!  Please click on the link below to donate to this great cause……..thank you!
