Walk down memory lane raises money at Stamford Bridge

Walk down memory lane raises money at Stamford Bridge
11th March 2009

Both staff and residents at Stamford Bridge care home, which is run by Barchester Healthcare, have taken part in a walk down memory lane to raise money for a major charity.

The two-mile amble had participants walking, or being pushed in wheelchairs, from Stamford Bridge to the Balloon Tree farm shop nearby in aid of the Alzheimer's Society.

Organisers highlighted that it was one of many Memory Walks involving patients in Barchester-run care homes around the country, with Stamford Bridge's effort raising £120 for the vital charitable organisation.

General manager of the care home Helen Lewis was delighted with the expedition and stated: "Residents and staff enjoyed the walk and no rain fell, which was a bonus allowing everyone involved to wear their fun hats."

Situated outside of York, Stamford Bridge Beaumont is a 24-hour nursing care centre providing specialist facilities for those suffering with dementia as part of the group's Memory Lane community.
