Heathcotes Santa Runners

22nd Nov 2011

Staff members and service users from Heathcotes Hucknall and Watnall took part in Mencap's annual Santa Run at Rufford Park in Nottingham on Sunday, raising vital funds for Mencap - the voice of learning disability.

Allison Stafford, Registered Manager of Heathcotes Hucknall and Watnall and Team Leader Fiona Gilbert, supported Adnan and Andy on a sponsored walk, whilst Keeley Ward, Heathcotes Behaviour Specialist, took part in the 5k fun run, finishing in 31 minutes and 30 seconds. Said Keeley, "Adnan and Andy were brilliant - they did the sponsored walk with Mencap collection tins, as well as providing support and encouragement for all the runners; they gave us a all a cheer at the finish line too!"

Allison Stafford added, "It's fantastic to see the lads get involved in raising money for charity and despite the cold, we were happy to be here; this is a way of supporting them to feel socially included and that's what we're all about!"
