Knights Care Fundraise £4506 for Dementia UK

We at Knights Care Group challenged ourselves to fundraise £1,000 and complete 500 miles in May in aid of Dementia UK.

Managing Director, Adam Knights, challenged himself to run 102 miles for Dementia UK, while Engagement Lead, Amy Meade, took on the challenge to walk 102 miles. The Knights Care Head Office Team sought to collectively walk/run 101 miles.

Each Knights Care Care Home also took on the challenge, with staff and residents of each home being challenged to walk 32.5 miles in May.

Exceeding our original goals, overall Knights Care Group raised £4,506 and walked 740 miles in May for Dementia UK. Residents enjoyed completing their miles with walks to local cafes and they even enjoyed an ice cream or two throughout the challenge. The staff of the care homes also took on this challenge completing their own miles outside of work and arranging bake sales and coffee mornings to help fundraising efforts.

Dementia UK is a charity close to our hearts, and we took on this challenge so that we could do our part in ensuring no family has to face dementia alone.

Dementia UK is the specialist dementia nurse charity. Their nurses, called Admiral Nurses, provide life-changing care for families affected by all forms of dementia.
