Nine care homes have announced they will be raising money towards a search and rescue charity this year.
The homes, which are all based in Norfolk, are to host a series of events in support of Norfolk Lowland Search and Rescue (NORLSAR).
The voluntary organisation helps emergency services find missing people and is on-call 24 hours-a-day. Staff at each of the homes, which are part of the Healthcare Homes Group, will organise events and activities for their residents throughout the year.
The homes include:
• Bilney Hall in Dereham.
• Claremont in Caister-on-Sea.
• Overbury House in Wroxham.
• The Gables in Great Yarmouth.
• The Manor House in North Walsham.
Operations director, Debbie Christian said: “The work of NORLSAR is so important in providing specialist help to our emergency services when people are in danger.”
