Three care assistants will be taking on an Oz-themed triathlon later this month to raise money for the residents’ fund at Hillcrest Care Home.
On Sunday, September 29, Theresa Luck, Leigh Lamb and Jessica Watson will attempt an hour’s swim, before dressing up as the lion, scarecrow and tinman from The Wizard of Oz to cycle from Amble to Hipsburn then walk from there to Alnwick.
They hope to arrive back at the care home around 3pm or 3.30pm in time for an apple and bramble tea to boost the fund-raising efforts.
Entry is £3, but the home needs to know numbers so contact 01665 604464 if interested.
Theresa, Leigh and Jessica, who work as care assistants in the memory loss unit, will be out and about looking for sponsorship in Alnwick and Amble, while there are also sponsor forms at the home.
