The community make great strides in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society
On Saturday 21 September Autumn Gardens and Anastasia Lodge Care Homes raised over £7,000 in support for Alzheimer’s Society by completing a 4km walk between their homes located in Winchmore Hill and Southgate.
Joined by the Mayor of Enfield Council, Kate Analoue, The High Commissioner of Cyprus in the UK Andreas Kakouris and Francesca Markland from the Alzheimer’s Society, alongside over 200 members of the community and even a few dogs they completed the walk in just over 1 hour.
Elena Makrides, the homes’ director said ‘Our walk brought people together, sharing their stories as we walked. It was a place where people were able to support each other, even for those who had lost loved ones to this terrible disease. There was a real spirit of togetherness. The support for the event and the substantial amount raised was heart-warming’
The walk coincided with the announcement of the Homes’ new Come Together Memory Club. A free club for those suffering with dementia. The club aims to bring older people with their carers together to enjoy socialising, fun activities and music in a dementia friendly and welcoming environment.Back to latest news
