A care home in Worcester participated in a ‘Memory Walk’ for the Alzheimer’s Society, raising £120.
Residents and team member at Perry Manor set out on a one-mile walk around their local area to raise funds for the charity.
The home specialises in dementia care and chose to hold its own walk after residents wanted to help the Alzheimer’s Society and raise awareness during World Alzheimer’s Month.
The Alzheimer’s Society set up the ‘Memory Walk’ initiative to help fund vital research by encouraging walkers, around the country, to unite against dementia and host their own walk.
The residents were joined by friends, family and team member for the walk around Worcester and were cheered on by the home team and residents.
Katherine Matthews, home manager at Perry Manor, said: “Here at Perry Manor we’re advocates of the wonderful work the Alzheimer’s Society carries out.
“Alzheimer’s has had a huge effect on many residents and their families, and that’s why we chose to support this initiative.
“To help drive awareness of the Alzheimer’s Society, residents chose to hold our very own ‘Memory Walk’ to raise much-needed funds. The day itself was lovely with the whole team, residents, family and friends all coming together.
“We’re already looking forward to the next fundraising event.”
