footballersHARTLEPOOL United players Ben Dudzinski and Jordan Richards joined elderly residents from Queens Meadow Care Home for a charity sponsored walk.

The footballers took time out of their training schedule to support the pensioners as they raised over £300 for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Team mascot H’Angus the Monkey also joined in the short walk, alongside staff and relatives.

Julie Armstrong, Home Manager at Queens Meadow Care Home, on Stockton Road, said: “Our thanks go to Hartlepool Football Club for supporting our Alzheimer’s Memory Walk.

“We’d also like to thank all those who took part and donated to such a worthy cause. We care for a number of residents with dementia at the care home, so the Alzheimer’s Society is a charity close to our hearts.”
