MHA Stratton House care home has been presented with a Police Crime Commissioner’s Award.
Earlier this year, a friend of the home cycled 250 miles from Land’s End to raise money for the charity – after this news, the residents decided they wanted to beat the friend’s effort using floor peddlers.
The team included residents, staff, volunteers and even the local Methodist minister, cycled 250 miles across five days – and beat the friend’s efforts by 30 minutes.
The home raised more than £1,000 and will be used to transform their garden so it’s more sensory friendly with raised beds and scented planting.
Sue Mountstevens, Police Crime Commissioner for Avon and Somerset said she was honoured to provide the award and bring it to the home.
Ms Mountstevens added: “It is incredible to meet some truly extraordinary people who have such a drive and passion for their local community. It is so easy to sit back, and watch others do the hard work, but here everyone involved have shown such dedication to support Stratton House.”
The home is known as one the UK’s top 20 charities.
