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.
