Residents at Hunters Down Care Home take a Walk of Hope.

Chief Operating Officer, Sam Manning from Excelcare asked their 33 Care Homes if they would take part in walking a minimum of 1-lap of either an indoor or outdoor space, whilst maintaining social-distances, for their “walk of hope”

All of the steps taken were in memory of Captain Tom Moore and aims to continue the spread of positivity and hope during this unprecedented and difficult times. We are also raising money for The Excelcare Foundation. The Foundation was recently set up with the Charity Commission to help relieve financial hardship amongst employees and / or their immediate family members of Excelcare who are in need by reasons of ill health or bereavement.

Hunters Down Care Home in Huntingdon have already participated in Excelcare’s Walk of Hope. Captain Tom Moore inspired the staff and residents to carry on his legacy through the ‘Walk of Hope’.

104 laps of the corridors were completed during the production of a wonderful video which was put together by Kristine, Lifestyle Coordinator, a replica of Tom Moore & Michael Ball singing “Your never walk alone”.

Residents and staff also walked on the spot singing “your never walk alone”, while working on their duties as well. It certainly made the working day so much more fun, perhaps we will do this on a daily basis now!!!

Hunters Down video has been uploaded onto Hunters Down Facebook page, which is well worth a watch, click on link to watch

Thank you to all the staff and residents who participated.
