Bikeathon

Staff at Magdalen Park recently held a Bikeathon to raise money for the residents fund. Staff pedalled away for a total of 9 hours nonstop in the reception area and were encouraged to keep going by residents and visitors. Kevin one of our seniors from our Haven unit gave himself a personal challenge of cycling for 8 hours and completed 160km on his own bike trainer. Our activity coordinator Steph Ashton and her team which included Charlotte from reception, Kerry from the onsite hairdressers , Laura our residential lead and two of our seniors Abbie and Laura cycled on an exercise bike for 6 ½ hours with Steph putting in 5 hours of pedalling and, altogether they completed 160km.  Overall £827 was raised for Magdalen Parks residents fund. A big thankyou to everyone who supported us on the day and a special to Shirley , Toms wife who bought a large cream cake for the cyclists to share.
