Cruden Bay care home raises 500 for sensory garden
An Aberdeenshire care home is one step closer to reviving its outdoor garden space after raising £500 in a sponsored walk.
Staff and residents at Bayview Care Home in Cruden Bay walked more than 20miles to raise money for a new sensory garden within the grounds.
Organised by the care home’s interim manager, Lisa Duncan and three of the resident’s relatives, a total six members of staff and seven residents walked three miles in support of the cause.
The group walked from the care home on Prospect Terrace down towards the shore to watch the boats sail in and out of the harbour.
Mrs Duncan along with senior care practitioner, Nikita Rossiter, and care home administrator, Jennifer Wetherburn opted to go the extra mile for the home by walking 20miles up the coast to Mintlaw.
Mrs Duncan, said: “Everyone who took part in the sponsored walk did a fantastic job, raising an amazing £500 total. It was a great day out, and after nearly 18 months of Covid restrictions, this was a great opportunity for some of our residents to be back in the local community of Cruden Bay.
