Angel/MSN Care PLC and their procurement partner – Purchasing for Good took on a mammoth challenge. They took the number of beds they have in their organisation – 389 and decided that wasn’t enough so doubled it to get 778. They then set the challenge of self-propelling 778 miles as a collective team of care home workers, residents, management and colleagues.
Between 17th and 23rd April 2023 teams from across the Angel/MSN Care and Purchasing for Good – walked, cycled, wheeled wheelchairs, cross-trailered (is that even a thing?), and danced their way to not 778 miles but collectively achieved 5267 miles – 6.7 times over their original target.
The teams all had great fun and, in the process, have raised an incredible £4441.50 with donations still coming in.
