FUNDRAISING sleepwalkers have raised more than £1,000 for Rowcroft Hospice.

The Care Bears team made up of Sally Kenyon, Katie Sanders, Becci Hooper, Shona Walton, Martina Holland, Sally Rowse and Lori Howard took part in the 15-mile sleepwalk.

They are all staff at the Torbay community office of Somerset Care.

Clare Barge, deputy community services manager, said: "I'm so proud of all of them, 15 miles is quite a distance, especially in the dark. It was a fantastic team effort from the community base here in Torbay and we are all really pleased for them."

The Care Bears are hoping to repeat their success next year.

Somerset Care is one of the largest not-for-profit healthcare providers in Southern England, providing more than 39,000 hours of community care every week to people in their own homes in 15 local authority areas and operate 32 care homes which provide residential and nursing care for more than 1,550 residents.
