Because of the lockdown the idea was to no only exercise physically but also to mentally exercise as I’m sure we have all struggled to come to terms with the implications of not being able to do things we would normally or not see our nearest and dearest.
We have continued to receive support and wishes of good luck during this time including a message from Jack the Lad (Zoe’s brother in law). Thank you Jack for taking the time x
Our friends at Head Active joined us for this challenge and really gave it 100%! – Here are some words from a few.
February has seen us once again raise funds for our friends at St Barnabas House.
Residents, staff (and their families) have been joined in fundraising by Head Active members and they have sent us some amazing images! – Click on them to enlarge.
A huge well done to everyone that has taken part – it’s not to late to take part – please see our Just Giving link below.
Since May 2012 the staff and residents at Valerie Manor have been dedicated to raising money for this fantastic charity.
For those wanting to join the challenge as part of our team please donate £5 with your name and ‘Fit Feb’ and for anyone else just wanting to support us we appreciate your donation!
Whether you take part alone or challenge a friend or family member, all you have to do is complete an hour of physical or mental activity each day throughout February 2021, and get sponsored for doing it.
You can get fit however you like, and you can mix it up throughout the month. So, whether you jive, juggle, or jog… row, ride, or rollerblade… scoot, skateboard or space hop, there’s something for everyone, no matter what your age or ability.
We have now joined forces with Head Active to raise more money for St Barnabas – Head Active have helped me with my physical and mental wellbeing during this difficult time and it’s like a new family of lovely people!
