Springhill's weigh and go to keep spirits up

To keep spirits up, and in a bid to keep our staff healthy, Springhill Care Home have decided to set up their own 'weigh and go' intiative.

All proceeds and penalties for weekly fees and (hopefully no) gains will be split between the home's staff and residents fund.

Eileen Welch, manager at Springhill, said: "With all the usual classes and gyms closed, I think everyone is a little concerned that they turn to sweets and crisps for comfort and when there's not much else to do. We thought this would encourage creativity and positivity.

"Staff are quite excited about it and we hope it will just be something extra to keep the morale up."
