Residents at a Shropshire care home have been putting their best foot forward in supporting frontline NHS workers by holding a sponsored walk around the care home site and gardens.

Staff and residents from Innage Grange in Bridgnorth participated in the walk, which raised over £800. The funds were used to buy a variety of treats and gifts that were then donated to Intensive Care Unit staff at Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital Trust.

Home manager, Claire Childs, said “It was a wonderful group effort by residents and staff alike. We all appreciate how hard the NHS is working at the moment, from doctors and nurses, to housekeeping and support staff, so we wanted to do our bit to say a big thank you for their efforts.

“We had a visit from Julia Clarke, the Director of Corporate Services at the hospital trust, who was able to meet with residents, collect the donation and share her thanks on behalf of the workers that are set to receive some delicious treats.”

Innage Grange provides dedicated nursing and residential care to 83 residents, with the support of over 100 care staff. Residents have the opportunity to take part in a variety of physical and social activities alongside using on-site services including a salon and café.

The home, which is operated by Shropshire’s largest independent, not for profit, care provider Coverage Care Services, is currently accepting new residents and for more information visit the website
