Nikki Willox, a senior carer at Balhousie Monkbarns, has walked the West Highland Way to raise money for the residents’ comfort fund.
Taking on the 96 miles trek alongside a couple friends, Nikki completed the journey over five days this week, starting from Glasgow last Friday and arriving in Fort William on Tuesday.
A keen hill walker, Nikki and two close friends decided to do the epic walk to raise money for their own individual charities. Nikki raised almost £900 in total for the Arbroath home.
It was an easy decision for Nikki to fundraise for her lovely residents. She said:
“I have worked in Monkbarns Care Home for nearly five years, and I love spending time with the residents. When I’m having a hard time, or I am finding times difficult, the residents will put a smile on my face and cheer me up. I hope they feel the same about me. I was delighted to be able to take on this challenge and raise money for our residents’ comfort fund.”
