We recently launched a new pan pal scheme with our sister care home near Reading, Shinfield View. It’s always great to make new friends, so our residents were really keen on the idea!

We decided to launch this new scheme in style, so Alan – our wonderful Events Manager – hand-delivered the letters last week, travelling from Cumnor Hill House in Oxfordshire to Shinfield View by bike! And that’s of the push variety, not motor...

Alan cycled from Oxford to Reading and Andover and on to Stonehenge and Avebury, travelling over 150 miles to deliver the letters – and he also transported the replies with him back to Cumnor Hill House! He did it all in the name of charity.

The bike ride was part of our fundraising campaign to help Connie get the treatment she so desperately needs for her spinal muscular atrophy. We’re still fundraising, so it’s not too late to donate! Speak to a member of the Cumnor Hill House team if you’d like to contribute to help Connie.
