Residents at a Meldreth care home were delighted to have raised more than £2,000 for an Alzheimer’s charity after going on a fundraising walk around the village.
The Maycroft care home residents raised a whopping £2,263 for the Alzheimer’s Research UK have presented a cheque to Dr Steve Andrews from the charity.
Maycroft manager Lynn Ward said: “What an achievement this was, it’s one to be really proud of.
“Steve thanked everyone on behalf of the charity as well as giving a brief talk on their latest work into new drug development for dementia.
“The residents ultimately aim to raise £25,000 for the cause close to their hearts, as many are living with dementia themselves.
“Once again the local Meldreth community showed their support by walking with us on the day, as well as donating handsomely to the cause – demonstrating great community spirit.
“We cannot thank everyone who took part or donated enough, once again we are very proud of what our residents have achieved.”
