Staff and volunteers from Tickford Abbey care home, in Newport Pagnell, have raised £1,228 in a sponsored swim.

Twelve people took part in the swimming challenge at Wolverton Swimming and Fitness Centre on September 5.

The money raised will go towards the home’s £10,000 target for purchasing a minibus for residents.

Activity co-ordinator Amie Leveridge, aged 27, swam with her 25-year-old brother Daniel, who suffers from cerebral palsy. Amie used a noodle to help her assist Daniel in the pool.

Mum Angela showed support by running a tombola in the lobby area, wearing her Team Tickford T-shirt.

Senior carer Emma also joined in the swim with her two young sons.

All swimmers taking part received award certificates.

Amie said: “I am amazed how well the event turned out. I cannot thank enough the people who took part, those who donated and the staff at Wolverton Swimming and Fitness Centre for helping us turn it into a fun and fantastic event.”
