Comment
 

Corrie Fransen, Director, Woodingford Lodge

“While some of our residents might not have the physical ability to participate in the annual Dairy Capital Run, we know they would enjoy the thrill of the race. So our staff thought it would be fun to host our own event where we can get out in the fresh air and enjoy a roll or stroll around our building. As we go around, we can wave to our neighbours at the Woodstock Hospital and show support for the care they provide to our community.”
