St Mark's Nursing Centre raise money for dementia

Dementia suffers, their families and staff from St Mark's Nursing Centre in Maidenhead enjoyed an afternoon stroll to raise money in aid of Alzheimer's

A group of 18 got involved in the sponsored walk which began on Wednesday at 1.30pm.

Participants began at the care home in St Mark's Road, which is part of Bupa UK, walked down Courthouse Road and ended up at Oaken Grove Park where they rested with refreshments before walking back again.

Those taking part included 82-year-old Brenda Foreman, who has dementia, and was accompanied on the route by her husband Jack.

The event was part of the Alzheimer's Society Memory Walk initiative and involved Bupa care homes from across the country to raise money for research into the disease.

The care home's activity co-ordinator Kaye Denham said: "The walk was fantastic and all the staff and residents had a lovely time.

"If you worked here you would see why this is so important because these people need special care."
