PURPLE stocks and a charity car wash helped a Rotherham care home, Broadacres Care Home, raise funds for the Stroke Association.

Broadacres Care Home, on Naylor Street, collected £109 from dozens of customers wanting to get their car cleaned.

While waiting, they were invited to throw a wet sponge at senior carer Scott Needham, who was locked into the Stroke Association stocks.

The event raised £109 for the charity, which will go towards supporting stroke survivors and funding research.

CARE home workers held a supermarket collection for the Stroke Association – raising hundreds of pounds for the charity.

Staff from The Oaks Care Home, in Blyth, Northumberland, spent two days in the town’s Morrisons store with collection buckets.

They raised £442 before running a raffle and taking collections at the care home to bump the total up to £542.

Residents’ family members, staff and friends of the home all donated prizes for the raffle and put hands in pockets to donate an extra £100.

Paige Gallagher, activities coordinator at The Oaks Care Home, on Durban Street, said: 

“We just wanted to do our bit to help the Stroke Association as they do brilliant work.”

Ann Mielnik, home manager, added:
