Did you know that we’ve been fundraising for Alzheimer’s?


At The Old Rectory, we recognise the significant impact that dementia has on individuals and their families, and we’re passionate about supporting this important cause. So, we organised a charity walk to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer’s.

Fundraising for Alzheimer’s | About the Event

The sponsored walk took place on June 28th and brought together our dedicated staff, residents, and family members.


Organised by our registered manager at The Old Rectory, Kelly Parker, the charitable event was a huge success.


Our fundraising efforts resulted in an impressive total of £913 — all of which will go towards the Alzheimer’s Society

The funds we’ve raised will make a tangible difference in the lives of those affected by Alzheimer’s. 


They will support vital research, provide essential services, and offer invaluable assistance to individuals living with dementia and their families. 


Every pound raised brings us closer to finding a cure and improving the quality of life for those impacted by this condition.

We couldn’t be prouder of our manager, Kelly, who played a vital role in this initiative.


Reflecting on the event, she said: “Fundraising for Alzheimer’s is not just about the financial contribution; it’s about raising awareness and creating a sense of unity within our community. 


“The support and participation we received during the sponsored walk demonstrated the collective determination to make a positive impact and bring about change.


“We’re so grateful to everyone who participated, donated, and supported our fundraising efforts. Together, we’re making a real difference in the lives of individuals with Alzheimer’s and their families.”
