Buckland Care Homes Raise Money For British Lung Foundation

Residents at The Firs & West Bank took part in a ‘Step Challenge’ in September, raising money for The British Lung Foundation in a tribute to those we have lost during the pandemic.

Residents at The Firs, team ‘Red Hot Chilli Steppers’ and West Bank, team ‘West Bank Wobblers’ wore pedometers over a 2 week period, aiming to reach a combined target of 5000 steps per day which is much higher than their usual step count.

Manager of The Firs, Nikki Shayler explains, “The extra encouragement to move around the home is also beneficial to the residents as it keeps them active, improving strength and coordination and therefore reducing the risk of falls. The residents have really been enjoying themselves and we have had some amazing support from families as well as healthcare professionals – thank you to everyone who has donated!” The residents have smashed their step targets and are working hard to reach their donation targets.

In total, Buckland Care residents raised £475 for the British Lung Foundation and Buckland Care doubled what was raised to bring it to a total of £950.
