Four care home workers from Bognor Regis have completed a ‘jailbreak challenge’ to raise more than £600 for a Sussex children’s charity.
Marcia Ellis, Danni Andrews, Nikki Kenchington and Kodie Chesters, who work at Elizabeth House care home, took part in the challenge to raise the funds for local cause, The Sussex Snowdrop Trust.
The Trust provides ‘nursing care at home’ for local children with life-threatening or terminal illnesses.
Organised by Spirit FM, the challenge started by dropping the four members of staff 40 miles from base with a series of clues. They had five hours to travel to Fontwell Park Racecourse, but weren’t allowed to spend money or use mobile phones. The team completed the challenge with just three minutes to spare.
Kodie Chesters, team leader at Elizabeth House care home, which is run by Shaw healthcare, said: “It was such an amazing day, and we raised over £600 for a wonderful cause, with pledges still to be collected. Thank you to everyone who donated and also those who helped us with transport to complete the challenge.”
