Staff, residents, family and associates of Albert House Residential Home in Colne took part in their own Memory Walk at the beginning of the month.

The aim of the walk was to increase awareness of dementia and raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society and it proved to be a grand little challenge.

Over 45 people took part in a two mile walk through the town centre with the additional aim of making the community dementia friendly for all of those with or affected by the disease.

Together the group raised £1,001 for the Alzheimer’s Society and they would like to thank all those who helped, donated and participated on the day.
