Staff and residents at Moors Manor care home in St Leonards, Ringwood have taken part in a sponsored bike ride to raise money for Dementia Action Group.
Staff and residents at the home got stuck in to help raise funds for this very important cause. The static cycle began at 5.00am and staff members, relatives, and local professional Olivia Singer, from Lester Aldridge Solicitors all took turns to cycle the 88 miles to London. Residents also joined in using the seated pedals and achieved a fair few miles between them. Moors Manor smashed their target and cycled 107 miles in total.
Globally, dementia is one of the biggest challenges we face, with nearly 50 million people living with dementia worldwide. Residents and staff at Moors Manor were all very supportive and were there to cheer on the participants as they began the fundraising challenge.
Jenna May, at Moors Manor Care Home, said: “Taking part in fundraising for Dementia Action Group has been a huge amount of fun and everyone at the home has been behind us all the way. It’s for such an important cause and one very close to our hearts here at Moors Manor. We’re very glad to be able to do our bit to raise further awareness and money for this important community group.”
Moors Manor care home raised a grand total of £420.00 by completing the challenge, which was presented to Lynne Morris from Dementia Action Group in the form of a large cheque. Lynne said “Dementia Action Group are absolutely thrilled and very grateful for the funds so desperately needed within the local community”.
