West London care homes join forces to take a walk down memory lane for charity

Home news

Team members from care homes in West London recently took part in a memory walk in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society.                                          

The teams at Whitby Dene in Middlesex, Oak House in Berkshire and Franklin House in Middlesex raised a total amount of £900 for the dementia charity. The teams joined 3,000 members of the community to take part in the 5km circuit around the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London.

Throughout the year, thousands of people of all ages and abilities have joined their local Alzheimer’s Memory Walks, all to help raise money for a ‘world without dementia’.

Eileen Coyle-Jones, regional director, said: “We are always looking for ways to generate awareness for worthwhile causes, and this was the perfect opportunity to raise £900 for a charity so close our hearts. Joining this walk was a fantastic way to raise awareness of dementia in the local area, as well as joining neighbouring care homes together and helping to build relationships with members of the local community.”  

Saad Baig, home manager at Whitby Dene, said: “The Whitby Dene team members were thrilled to be able to meet with other Care UK homes and had a great time taking part in the memory walk for the Alzheimer’s Society. It was wonderful to be able to complete the walk together in support of many friends and relatives.”
