St Mary's Court Care Home, Braintree, Essex
Caring staff, friends and family from St Mary’s Court residential care home have raised nearly £1,000 after taking part in a Memory Walk.
Nearly 30 people, including relatives of past and present residents of the homes, plus Bella the dog, joined the six-mile route through farmland and woodland near Braintree, taking in Bocking village.
Elderly residents from the homes helped to raise the funds for the Alzheimer’s Society by taking part in a shorter walk around their spacious grounds.
Julia Clinton, CEO of Sonnet Care Homes, which runs St Mary’s Court, joined the team of walkers. She said:
“It was a really fun and enjoyable event, particularly as the weather was unseasonably warm!
“We are thrilled to have raised so much money for such a worthy cause, which is so close to our hearts, and would like to thank all the fabulous volunteers who joined us on the day.”
