Tees Barrage sponsored walk for care homes

Mandale House Care Home, in Thornaby, and Ingleby Care Home, in Ingleby Barwick, both walked over 3 miles for their chosen causes.

Mandale House raised £125 for their residents’ fund and Ingleby collected £124 for the Stroke Association.

Setting off from Acklam Road, the group from Mandale House walked via Teesside Park to the Tees Barrage International White Water Centre, where they stopped for a well-earned cuppa.

After learning about the history of Tees Barrage and watching the wildlife, they continued across the Infinity Bridge, past Stockton Riverside College and back to the home.

Resident Jean Whenray said: “It was a wonderful afternoon and the scenery was beautiful.”

Louise Hawksby, home manager at Mandale House Care Home, said:

“We organise a sponsored walk to Tees Barrage every year and it’s always a highlight for the residents and staff. Everyone had a wonderful time and we raised a great amount for the residents’ fund, which will help towards outings during the summer months.”

The group from Ingleby Care Home, on Lamb Lane, then set off for their walk around Tees Barrage before a drink in the Talpore pub.

Mandale HouseResident Shirley Naylor said:

“It was a lovely walk out to raise money for a great cause. I’d never walked around the Barrage before but it was beautiful.”

Carol Singleton, home manager at Ingleby Care Home, said:

“We have organised various fundraising activities for the Stroke Association with the sponsored walk being the latest. We’d like to thank all those who donated and helped us raise a wonderful amount for a very worthy cause.”

Mandale House and Ingleby care homes are part of the Hill Care Group. For further information visit
