With the Olympics fast approaching, a local care home is limbering up for its very own sporting tournament.

On Friday 12th July from 2pm-4pm, Care UK’s Halecroft Grange, on Hale Road, will be bringing Paris to Altrincham as it opens its doors for people to enjoy their own version of the Games.

The event is part of The Big Care UK Sports Day, which sees more than 130 Care UK homes host sports days for the local community and showcase what life in a care home is really like.
