Run, Walk or Push Against Dementia 2019 was held at Knole Park in Sevenoaks on Sunday 12th May to raise money for local dementia services. The money raised will go to the Sevenoaks Area Dementia Friendly Community which run services in the area such as the ‘forget me not’ dementia cafes and ‘forget me notes’ singing choir.
Greensleeves Care are an active part of the Sevenoaks Area Dementia Friendly Community with our two local homes Lavender Fields and Gloucester House regularly supporting events throughout the year.
Andy Wilson (Family Liaison Manager), Steve Mason (Dementia Admiral Nurse), Michelle Bryant (Deputy Manager at Lavender Fields) and Clare Cosby (Receptionist at Lavender Fields) were all in attendance on the day to help with registrations for the 372 runners followed by giving out goodie bags, bananas and water bottles after the run.
The runners and walkers had an option of a 3k, 5k or 10k which attracted participants right from running clubs to families, children and even dogs, the annual event is increasing in numbers every year and both Greensleeves Care homes were represented with participants including family members and staff taking part.
