North Shields care home raises money for NAPA through sponsored wellbeing walkHC-One’s Redesdale Court care home in North Shields raised money for the National Association for Providers of Activities for Older People (NAPA) with a sponsored walk.

The NAPA year of Moving & Grooving 2021 is a campaign to support the care sector to prioritise physical activity, with the aim of improving physical, psychological and social wellbeing.

As part of the campaign, the team at Redesdale Court arranged a sponsored walk along the beautiful North East coastline, from St Mary’s Lighthouse, Whitley Bay all the way to Collingwood Monument in Tynemouth.

Wellbeing Coordinator Stacey Taylor bravely agreed to complete the sponsored walk in roller stakes, she was joined by her mother Christine Watson, Alex Rutherford, Katie Wallace as well as Jaqueline Rutherford and Freddie Wallace, who is aged six and is the great-grandson of Elsie, a Resident at Redesdale Court.

The group completed the 11,000 steps from the start and finish point, raising £200 for NAPA. Everyone at Redesdale Court was impressed with their achievements, especially that Freddie completed the long walk at the young age of six.

Redesdale Court Home Manager, Daniel Ridley said: “What an amazing achievement! Well done to Stacey, Christine, Alex, Katie Jaqueline and Freddie.”

Located on Rake Lane, Redesdale Court care home offers short and long term care packages for older ladies and gentlemen in North Shields that require residential care and residential memory care for those living with dementia.
