Dementia Campaigner Jayne Connery Wing Walks to £3,000 with Support from Care Protect
Care Protect has supported high profile dementia awareness campaigner, Jayne Connery, to undertake a nerve wracking wing walk in aid of BRACE, the Alzheimer’s research charity.
The wing walk, in which Jayne was secured to a 1940s, 450 horsepower Boeing Stearman biplane, raised an impressive £3,085.
Jayne is campaigning to highlight the issues which surround care homes and has called for CCTV to be installed in every care home after her own Mum’s experiences. Her petition, which attracted more than 13,700 signatures, has now been handed over to 10 Downing Street.
Philip Scott, CEO of Care Protect, said: “Jayne has done a great job in drawing attention to the unacceptable practices in care homes and the need for camera surveillance. Raising money to support research into dementia is also vitally important and we were pleased to make a financial contribution to enable this adventure to take place.”
Jayne Connery said: “I would like to thank Care Protect and Philip Scott for the incredible support to enable me to wing-walk for BRACE, but also Ben Wilson for his support on the big day!
“It’s vitally important that we not only raise money for the brilliant charities which surround dementia but also to keep highlighting issues within the care sector.”
