Crispin Court Celebrates Red Nose Fundraising

Crispin Court Care Home in Stafford were proud to raise an amazing £500 for Comic Relief at their energetic Red Nose Day event. Monies were raised through sponsorship, cake sales and donations from the staff and the public.

The main event was a 10 hour bikeathon, where the goal was to constantly keep the fitness bikes’ wheels spinning. Situated in Reception, staff, family and friends began the bikeathon and then members of the public joined Crispin Court in the pedal pushing. Rev. Elaine of St. Bertelin’s and local councillors, Bryan Cross and Jonathan Price, even got involved.

Alongside the bike ride, there were a variety of other fundraising activities such as a cake-sale, where residents of Crispin Court participated in a themed bake-off; and three brave male staff faced the pain in a sponsored leg wax! As the afternoon was blessed with lovely weather, Crispin Court hosted an afternoon tea with entertainment in their landscaped gardens, and entertainer Becky sang a range of songs from musicals and the 50’s. Everyone had such a fabulous time and the activities made for a successful fundraising day.

Lorraine Ford, Crispin Court’s Home Manager, commented: “We are delighted to be able to support such a worthwhile cause. Our residents really enjoyed getting into the spirit of the fun and activities.

I would like to say a special thanks to everyone who donated and took part in this event; also to local gym, Elite 2000 Fitness Centre, for kindly lending Crispin Court the bike.”

The monies raised by Crispin Court, owned and operated by leading national care provider Avery Healthcare, will go towards Comic Relief, a major charity tackling poverty and injustice throughout the UK and the world’s poorest communities.
