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.
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!
We entered a team into the trek walking 21 miles across the beautiful South Downs, consisting of myself, Catherine Henderson and her husband Andrew, and Mike Slator and his wife Sarah from our local pharmacy.
Valerie Manor have been raising money for St Barnabas House for six years now, so far raising an incredible £7,656.09.
This was a real challenge for all of us. I’ve never walked 21 miles before. The bottom of my legs really hurt but it was very enjoyable and we had a lovely day for it!
St Barnabas support not only our residents, but the staff as well, through difficult times. We do a lot of end of life care at Valerie Manor so we’re glad for the support from St Barnabas.
