Six employees took off from Beccles Airfield for a sky dive earlier this month, raising money for the home’s residents fund, which goes towards activities, entertainment and events.

Paula Pawsey, home manager, said: “Congratulations Jared, Adam, Matt, Jackie, Mags and Saara. We are all incredibly proud of you all for going way out of your comfort zones to do something wonderful for our residents.

“Raising money for our residents’ fund is really important to us, as it means we can offer those little extra things that bring a lot of happiness to people who live here. Whether it’s a boat trip on the broads, some new equipment for the garden or a performance from a local entertainer, we really enjoy arranging these opportunities, which we know means so much to our residents.”
