On Saturday 26 September staff and relatives of residents from The New Deanery and St Mary’s Court residential care homes near Braintree set off on a six mile Memory Walk to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society.
During the month Memory Walks are taking place across the UK in a bid to raise money for a world without dementia. People of all abilities can come together to recognise those affected by dementia by raising money for the cause.
Jo Crosby, Head of Activities at The New Deanery and St Mary’s Court said: “Thousands of people each year develop dementia and we want to raise money to help fund new research, which will hopefully one day find a cure.”
“There will be 25 of us setting off on our walk around Bocking and High Garrett from The New Deanery on Saturday at 10am and we will be finishing at St Mary’s Court. We welcome all to join us.”
For those wishing to take part in the Memory Walk please call Jo Crosby on 01376 632 8600 and for more information on the Alzheimer’s Society and the Memory Walks visit www.memorywalk.org.uk.
