A huge congratulations to our incredible team at Miranda House Care Home in Wootton Bassett who took on a 24-hour cycling challenge to raise £300 for the Alzheimer’s Society!
In case you missed home manager Mandi Short on BBC Wiltshire last week talking about the challenge, the challenge was led by Mandi with her cycling group, the Swindon Wheelers.
The group took turns to cycle for 24-hours and together completed a total of 224 miles.
They were supported in their efforts by the local community, local council and parish council who also attended the event.
Mandi said: “It was a great event. As I’m a cyclist, who does many miles a week, it wasn’t so bad, but staying awake for more than 24hrs was the challenge.
“The team was outstanding and we supported each other. It was great to have some of the Swindon Wheelers cycling club, as well as relatives of our residents, on hand to support us as we took on the challenge.
“It’s vital we continue to raise awareness about the impact of dementia on individuals and their families, and how people can continue to live well.”
Miranda House Care Home is part of the Aria Care Group, which specialises in providing high-quality dementia care. The company and its staff are very passionate about dementia care and hope that the money raised will help those who need it.
