Last weekend, 14 representatives from Home Instead Senior Care, including 3 children and a pet mascot, took part in the Alzheimer’s Society Memory Walk at Eaton Park. Although the weather was a bit wet, spirits were not dampened and over 1000 people took part in the weekend’s walk.
Commenting on the event, Chris Carter, owner of Home Instead Norwich said, “Alzheimer’s Society’s single-minded fight for a better world for people with dementia is to be applauded and it was super to see so many people turn out to take part in the walk in support of this great cause.
“Around half of our clients are affected by a dementia so we know what a huge impact it has on people’s lives. Our support for this event is our way of giving something back and supporting a fantastic charity. We are proud to have raised over £350 for the charity.”
The Alzheimer’s Society Memory Walks are a series of fundraising walking events which take place every autumn across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Walks raise money to provide vital support to people living with dementia and help fund research to find a cure.
