Console fun at care home in Sheffield

Have your say

CARE home residents will be holding their own version of Sheffield Half Marathon when they go the distance - using a games console.

The participants from Norwood Grange Residential Home, Longley, will use a Nintendo Wii Fit to join in the fun on Friday, two days before the main event.

Activities co-ordinator Michelle Ketland, who has converted the 13-mile route into metres to be covered by staff and residents in a relay, said: “Just because we can’t take to the streets doesn’t mean we can’t compete.”
