Care home 'memory' walk raises £3,278!
by Mike Dawber


WHEN residents from a Crosby care home were told they couldn't take part in the Liverpool Memory Walk due to a lack of spaces, they decided to organise their own event.

Those from The Tithebarn, on Moor Lane, wanted to get involved in the annual fundraiser for Alzheimer's Society but were disappointed to find it was fully booked.

However, residents, relatives and staff at the RMBI care home organised their own walk in the Marine Gardens, in Waterloo, which raised £3,278 in donations for Alzheimer’s Society.

Mary Piert, activities coordinator at The Tithebarn said: “We were all looking forward to taking part in the Liverpool Memory Walk but when we realised spaces were fully booked, we thought it would be a nice idea to hold our own event.

”Residents thoroughly enjoyed the walk and it was a great way to bring everyone together. Since the event, donations have continued to come in and we’re thrilled to have raised over £3,000 for Alzheimer’s Society.“
