Sponsored walk kicks off Hingham care centre’s minibus appeal

A fundraising appeal has been launched for a Hingham care centre to buy a new minibus.

Hassingham House is looking to raise �20,000 for the bus to take patients on monthly day trips.

Staff and residents began fundraising with a one mile sponsored walk on Thursday from the centre in Hardingham Street.

Les King came to start off the proceedings, with the youngest participant aged two-years-old and the oldest 86-years-old. Everyone who participated received a medal and a cup, the evening ended with a barbecue.

This is the first of three sponsored walks and organisers are hoping to raise around �500.

The centre cares for people between the ages of 30 and 100 years, with neurological disorders, learning disabilities, dementia and physically disabled.
