Residents at a local care home are celebrating with a handful of gold medals after holding their very own Olympic- inspired event on home soil, proving age is no barrier when it comes to sporting success.

The sports competition gave residents a chance to test their skills in a range of events including target throwing, archery, basketball, egg and spoon races and even a discus competition. Residents also competed against another local care centre, with activities being hosted on both sites.

Claire Rodgers, General Manager at Wood Hill House, said:

“Many professional athletes retire from competitive sport during their early thirties but our residents have proved that age is no barrier to staying fit and active!”
