Care Home Staff Walk Over 10 Miles To Raise Funds For Charity

CHESTERFIELD care home staff marched over 10 miles to raise funds for the fight against dementia.

The Alzheimer’s Memory Walk was organised by Holmewood Care Home, on Barnfield Close.

They were joined by David Tomlins, son of resident Margaret Tomlins.

The group walked from the home to Chesterfield town centre and back – raising £188.47.

The money will go to the Alzheimer’s Society, the focus of a wider fundraising campaign by the Hill Care Group, which operates Holmewood Care Home.

Kathleen Richardson, home manager, said: “The walk was a very fulfilling experience for everyone involved.

“We’d like to thank all those who donated, as well as the staff and volunteers who took part to raise money for such a worthy cause.”

The funds will add to a total of more than £10,000 raised by Hill Care’s homes across the north of England over the past year.

The campaign has been in support of Hill Care’s managing director Wendy Waddicor, who cycled over 340-miles from London to Paris for the charity.
