£500 raised by Teesside homes for dementia fight


Teesside Memory Walk 3TWO TEESSIDE care homes raised over £500 for the Alzheimer’s Society by staging a Memory Walk in Albert Park, Middlesbrough.


The walk was organised by The Beeches and The Gables care homes and involved residents, family and staff.


It is part of a national campaign to raise money to fight dementia, with other Alzheimer’s Memory Walks taking place across England, Wales and Northern Ireland throughout September.


Liz Jones, Customer Relations Officer at the Hill Care Group, which operates the homes, said: “We’d like to thank everyone who took part in the walk and anyone who has donated to this great cause.


“The money will go towards helping those living dementia. Working with dementia residents across the Hill Care Group, including at The Beeches The Gables, means this is a cause very close to our hearts.”


Donations can still be made via the care homes’ Just Giving page: www.justgiving.com/mw15Beeches
