£600 raised by Newton Aycliffe care home for dementia charity


Memory walkresizeThe families of residents at a Newton Aycliffe care home were put through their paces en route to raising more than £600 for charity.


Aycliffe Care Home, which is operated by Akari Care, has donated the money to the Alzheimer’s Society after taking part in a Memory Walk, in Chester-Le-Street.


Family members of residents at the home took part in the walk and were joined by resident Peter Barron, as well as deputy manager, Christine White, and senior carer, Claire Gauden.


Located on Burnhope Way, Newton Aycliffe, Aycliffe Care Home is a purpose built 54-bed home that provides 24 hour general residential, dementia and nursing care.


Christine White, Deputy Manager at Aycliffe Care Home, said: “It was lovely to see so many people of all ages joining in. I have done this walk in memory of people I have had the privilege of getting to know and care for along with their families and loved ones. I dedicate this walk to each and every one and can’t wait for us all to do it again next year.”
