Care home car wash raises funds for Stroke Association

July 4, 2018

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.

Luke Owens, home manager at Broadacres Care Home, said:

“We held the event on one of the hottest days of the year so far and it was a huge success. Even the residents got involved throwing wet sponges at Luke in the stocks.  We’d like to thank everyone who came along for the car wash and donated to a very worthy cause.”
