Oaklands Care Home puts best foot forward to raise money for Alzheimer's Society
A care home raised money for the Alzheimer’s Society by taking part in an annual memory walk on Saturday.
Residents and carers from Oaklands Care Home in Scole joined forced to take part in the walk, either on foot, with frames or in wheelchairs.
Sponsored by friends and family, the group managed to raise £70 for the charity by completing two laps of the Kingsley Healthcare-run establishment.
Home administrator Becky Kingsland said: “This charity is close to our residents’ hearts because many of them struggle with dementia.
“Everyone really enjoyed it and I am sure we will repeat it in the future. Even staff who were not on shift came in to take part.
“After a year of lockdowns, it was lovely for everyone to be able to get out in the fresh air.”
People across the country took part in the memory walk, which is a family-friendly series of sponsored walks suitable for all ages and abilities.
