A team from Oak Lodge Care Home recently took part in a charity sky dive to raise money for Age UK.
A team of six staff members from the home jumped at the airfield at Dunkswell. The Team jumped from 15000 feet on Saturday 25th March. Healthcare Assistant Abbie Sergent who works in The Acorns suite caring for residents living with a dementia said “Age UK” was an obvious choice for us to fundraise for. They are the country’s largest charity dedicated to helping everyone make the most of later life. Age UK provide services and support at a national and local level to inspire, enable and support older people. All of the Oak Lodge staff support the campaign to help reduce lonelines and enable older people to love later life.
Abbie’s colleague Jo Molony added, “The whole team would like to thank all the staff at Sky Dive Buzz for their help on the day. It was an experience that far exceeded our expectations. The instructors were so professional and helpful and really put our minds at ease. Overall our team raised in the region of £2400 for AGE UK, although the exact total is yet to be confirmed. We would like to thank Majesticare and everyone else for their support and sponsorship donations.
