Staff and even older folk get in shape for a memory walk

Have your say

Residents, staff and friends of the Sheffcare chain of residential care homes are getting into shape ready for the Alzheimer’s Society annual Memory Walk.

The event, part of a nationwide network of 2k and 10k fundraising walks for the charity, will be held at Rother Valley Country Park on October 11.

And as a special incentive to employees, Sheffcare will contribute £25 each to the Alzheimer’s Society for the first two staff members from each home who register for the 10k walk.

“We are confident that not only will our staff be keen to take part but that some of our residents will also be active enough, certainly for the 2k event,” said Sheffcare chief executive Belinda Black.
