Posted on June 11, 2024 by Milkwood Admin

At Applewood, we are continually inspired by the kindness and dedication of our residents and their families. Today, we are thrilled to share the heart-warming story of one of our residents’ family members, Helen, who recently demonstrated extraordinary commitment by participating in a sponsored walk to raise money for dementia.

On May 11th, Helen embarked on an extremely challenging sponsored walk with a mission close to her heart: supporting dementia research and care. With incredible determination and a positive spirit, she completed the 26 mile walk in an impressive 9 hours and 8 minutes.

Thanks to her tireless efforts and the generosity of her sponsors, she raised a fantastic £783.00. This contribution will go a long way in supporting vital research and initiatives aimed at understanding and combating dementia, a cause that affects many of our residents.

The entire team at Applewood are immensely proud of Helen and her incredible accomplishment. Her dedication and compassion exemplify the community spirit we cherish and strive to foster every day.

Her story is a reminder of the power of collective effort and the difference one person can make. Whether through participating in events, volunteering, or simply offering support to those affected by dementia, every contribution counts and helps build a more caring and supportive community.

Helen, thank you for your remarkable contribution. Your spirit and commitment inspire us all, and we are deeply grateful for your efforts in making a positive impact in the fight against dementia.
