Nature walk aims to raise cash for Alzheimer's
10:00am Sunday 15th September 2013 in News
Staff and residents from Bupa Arbrook House nursing home in Esher are taking a walk on the wild side.
The nature-themed walk at 10.30am on Wednesday, September 25, forms part of the Alzheimer’s Society Memory Walk initiative.
It aims to help people living with dementia by raising money for vital research and care facilities.
Care home manager Vivienne Herbert wants as many people to take place as possible.
She said: “We are all in the process of getting our walking boots (and sticks) at the ready.
“Memory Walk is a worthy cause for our local people to get involved with and I’m sure everyone, no matter what their age, will have a great time at these fun, social events.”
Last year, 160 Bupa care homes organised walks, contributing £1.4m to the campaign.
Siobhan Drane, Bupa care services manager, said: “Not only will these walking events help those living with dementia, but they will also benefit our residents and more mature people of the community from a health perspective.”
