Glasgow Care Home Walks The Way To Fundraising Success

Residents, staff and relatives at a care home in Glasgow have donned their walking boots for a charity close to their hearts by taking part in a ‘Walking Your Way To Healthy’ fundraising event.

Thanks to their efforts, the committed group from Bupa’s Quayside care home on Halley Street, together with family, friends and members of the local community, raised an impressive £552 for Age UK.

The generous team did the sponsored walk around the local area near the care home, with all donations going towards the chosen charity which aims to help people make the most of later life.

The sponsored walk was organised as a part of a wider effort by Bupa to raise money for Age UK, which saw 48 Bupa care homes across Scotland and the North of England donate a staggering total of over £2100 to the charity.

Lyn McConville, Home Manager at Bupa’s Quayside care home, said: “We are always looking for ways to raise money for this deserving charity, and we thought the fundraising walk would be the perfect way to do this and get fitter at the same time.

“Getting involved in activities like this also really helps to enhance and enrich the lives of our residents by encouraging more social interaction and, of course, exercise.

“It’s an excellent example of the way that our care services work to keep older people included in social activities for as long as possible, reducing isolation, encouraging them to live their lives to the full and helping out a fantastic cause all at once.”

The ‘Walking Your Way To Healthy’ fundraising walk is just one of a whole host of innovative and inspiring activities created by Bupa to provide the highest level of care for its residents.
