Cheshire Home residents pedal towards fundraising goal

Using static exercise bikes, the residents of the Guernsey Cheshire Home will be working together to complete a physical challenge, cycling a total distance of 200km to raise £25,000 to fund an accessible outdoor adventure holiday with the Calvert Trust in Exmoor, where they can take part in activities like rock climbing, zip-lining, horse riding and camping.

Beginning on Friday 3rd February, residents at the home will work together in cycling the distance from Guernsey to Exmoor. They are appealing for donations through their page, which can be found by visiting Guernsey Cheshire Home on Facebook or visiting their website.

With no funding from the States, the home runs entirely on fundraising and donations at a cost of more than a million pounds per year.

Dedicated to the care of those with physical disabilities, the preservation of independence is a core value of the home and enabling residents to take part in outdoor activities with the Calvert Trust aligns perfectly with this.

“All families treasure being able to make memories together and we are no different. A trip to the Calvert Trust would be so special for our residents, especially after spending so much time locked-down and shielding in recent years,” explains Lianne Larkin, Deputy Home Manager.
