5:03pm Thursday 14th March 2013 in News
SOME choose to raise money for charity through daring deeds or excruciating exercise.
But staff at Tegfield House care home in Chilbolton Avenue, Winchester chose a comfier way of doing some good.
They took part in a pyjama day to raise £50 for children’s charity Wish ‘Em Well, making donations in return for wearing their bed clothes.
Manager Shirley Bartlett said “This was a wonderful opportunity to support a very worthy cause and have a little fun in the process. Some of our residents thought it was hilarious, seeing us working away as usual but in our pyjamas. I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who took part in the day.”
The money will go towards getting a Winchester girl to the USA for specialist radiotherapy treatment.
