‘Dogs for Dementia Walk’ Event at Mill House

At Mill House care home in Chipping Campden, we are busy preparing for our forthcoming ‘Dogs for Dementia Walk’ fundraising event.

Residents, relatives, team members and friends of Mill House will be walking around Dover’s Hill in Chipping Campden with their furry friends. It will be a great chance to enjoy a nice gentle stroll and raise funds for Dementia UK, our dementia unit and to raise awareness of dementia in the local community.

  • When: Sunday 23rd July 2017
  • Where: Walk around Dover’s Hill
  • Time: Start at 11:00 am

Why not become part of Mill House’s ‘Dogs for Dementia Walk’? Everyone is more than welcome to take part in a fundraising walk around our village. All you need is yourself, a comfortable pair of shoes, a dog (wearing a bandana is optional!), or why not just come along if you would like to join in and take part?

Kim Mulford, Home Manager said:

“It is going to be a great day and the money raised will make a real difference to peoples’ lives.”

So how did this event come about? The idea was born for an event in which we could support Dementia UK, raise awareness in the local community, whilst also having an enjoyable and sociable time. As a lot of the Mill House team, relatives and friends are dog lovers, and our residents enjoy visits from their dogs; who are regular and very welcome guests at our home, the event just grew from there.

So since then, we’ve been busy organising and getting ready; material has been ordered for the dogs bandanas and we will making them here at Mill House. Once completed, they will be on sale in our reception for our four legged walkers as part of our fundraising efforts, perhaps human sized ones too – you never know…

For those of our residents who have limited mobility or are unable to physically take part, they will still be involved in some way. Some of their families have kindly volunteered to put their best foot forward and will be pulling on their walking shoes and taking part on their behalf, with our residents and team proudly cheering them on.

So, if you would like to take part and be involved in Mill House’s local fundraising event ‘Dogs for Dementia Walk’ and to help raise dementia awareness, please do come along, we would love to see you.  All that we ask for is a donation of £2.00 per person or you can make your own donation to join us on the day.

If you would like to come along, buy a dog bandana or to make a donation, please see our welcome board in reception for details, or call us on 0808 223 5524, email manager.millhouse@caringhomes.org.
