Three teams of residents, who have a range of learning disabilities, went out with a support worker on the roads and paths close to their home, near Titchfield Park, as part of the annual event.
Jo Hardwick, care home manager, said: “We’ve been doing it since it started seven years ago.
“The people of Mansfield have been really kind and really supporting from a charity point of view and when we’re out.
“It’s about simply giving something back.
“It makes our residents feel part of the community and be accepted as part of the community and about meeting new people,”
