Staff and residents from Barking Hall Nursing Home, along with their family members and friends, are delighted to have raised over £400 for the Alzheimer’s Society charity by hosting their very own Memory Walk.
On Sunday 30th September, a group of staff from the nursing home, which is based in Barking near Needham Market, were also joined by members of the local community as they walked a journey of around seven miles. The journey started at Barking Hall and headed to Ringshall before returning back to the home for refreshments.
The walk raised vital funds for the Alzheimer’s Society, which works to raise awareness of the condition and funds for vital research. More than 220,000 people develop dementia every year and Barking Hall provides care to many residents who live with the condition.
Home Manager Sue Oates said, “The Memory Walk was a great success. The weather was kind to us and we were well supported by family members, friends and even people from the local community. There is such a great team spirit here at Barking Hall and so it was lovely to all join together to do this challenge for such a worthy cause. We are all delighted to have raised so much money for the Alzheimer’s Society.”
