Walking for Dementia - Go Fund Me

On the 13th of October, Maggie Strong and her team will be taking part in a 7.5km memory walk, in London, to raise money for the Residents fund and the Alzheimer's Society. The aim of this is fund raiser is to enhance the quality of lives of our residents living with Dementia by providing the staff with resources to enable them to practice meaningful activity and stimulation.

As everyone knows the funding available for health and social care is not ideal but everyone living with Dementia deserves meaningful care and an enhanced quality of life. This is why George Brooker House are continually fundraising for our residents and have now created this go fund me page. As you can see the fundraising campaign is well underway and we need your support in achieving this target.

The Alzheimer's Society hold Memory Walks to fund vital research "into a world without Dementia" and we will donate to that cause too!
