SANDRINGHAM: Could you get on your bike for Park House?
Organisers of a charity cycling event being held at Sandringham later this month have said they are pleased with the increasing rate of entries.
More than 200 riders have already signed up to take part in the Cycle Together Sandringham event, which takes place on Sunday, June 23 and will support the work done to provide respite breaks for disabled people at the Park House Hotel on the estate.
And, to mark this week’s National Carers Week, three regular visitors to the hotel have spoken of how important the property is to them.
Jackie Thoday, from Litcham, said: “I regularly stay at Park House to give my husband, who is my carer, a break. He knows I will be looked after with a high level of care from dedicated staff and I go home refreshed.”
Viv Barrett travels all the way from Leighton Buzzard to take advantage of the hotel’s facilities.
She said: “It gives me a holiday with the reassurance of knowing that I am safe, and will be well looked after by good care staff.
“The accommodation is very nice and, as I need to be hoisted the room is fully equipped, including an electric hoist. I cannot fault the care team.”
