A TEEN has pulled on his running shoes to raise money for a local care home.
Cameron Kirk from Cubbington is running 100km to raise money for Cubbington Mill care home activities.
The 16-year-old said: “Over this period of quarantine care homes have been under immense pressure to keep their residents safe, which has involved preventing any visitors to prevent the spread of the virus to vulnerable residents.
“Although this measure is vital it has still greatly impacted those at the care home as they can no longer receive visits from loved ones. Therefore the money that I raise will be used to fund activities for the residents so although they are not able to see those they care about, they are still able to enjoy their quarantine as much as possible.”
So far £500 has been raised.
Manager Julie May said: “Everyone at Cubbington Mill was keen to show Cameron support on his adventure, especially the residents who enjoyed hearing all about the experience.
“We are really proud of Cameron to have been able to raise this money. Thank you to everyone who donated and thank you Cameron.”
