A Challenge for Care’s Staff Team
In June 2019 we surpassed the 250 tenant mark! Whilst we are not a Landlord driven by growth or numbers, we are really pleased with the work we have recently undertaken to help a larger number of individuals with support needs to find a high-quality home. Over the last few years we have found homes outside of our traditional Lancashire base and have worked closely with individuals with a wider range of support needs to ensure we are able to help reach more people with a genuine housing need. The recent launch of our Faster Housing Solutions model will increase our reach further.
To celebrate, our small team (Matthew, Claire, Rachael, Doreen and Karen) are going to run / walk a combined total of 250km in just 1 week, between 29th July and 4th August. The challenge is just for fun – we will keep you posted on how we are progressing through our Facebook page and website!
The whole team have been working hard to fit in our kilometres. On Thursday morning we all set off from our office, Matthew and Rachael opting for the road to run (or to be gentler on sore knees!) and Claire, Doreen and Karen taking the scenic route by the river and returning by steam train!
Between us we added 56.5km to our total today and we’re well on track to reach our goal of 250km by Sunday…as long as our knees hang in there.
Challenge update – end!
Despite some wet weather and poorly knees, the team were glad to hit our combined total goal by Sunday lunchtime. The final distance of walks and runs we tracked was 252.4km! Here’s some evidence from our trackers: Doreen, Matt, Rachael, Karen and Claire
