Online PR News – 02-October-2009 – – Residents and staff at an Alcester care home put their best foot forward when they took part in a sponsored walk.

Waterloo House Care Home, in Bidford on Avon, held a memory walk on September 24 to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society – and they brought in £255 for the charity.

Residents were joined by friends, relatives and staff to complete laps of the care home’s garden to pull in the pounds for the charity.

Staff also wore fancy dress to brighten up the event

Laura Silcock, care home manager, said: “The residents and staff at Waterloo House wanted to get involved in the memory walks again this year and, after speaking to the Alzheimer’s Society, we decided to put on our own event at the home so that everyone could take part.

“The event was a great opportunity for friends and family members to get together and have a fun day doing something worthwhile.”

Waterloo House specialises in residential dementia care.
