Nine members of Team QEH who see the effects of dementia every day through their work are doing a fundraising walk for Alzheimer’s Society.
The women who all work on Oxborough Ward are taking part in the fourth Sandringham Memory Walk on Sunday, 16th September.
Clinical co-ordinator Hannah Richardson has organised “Team Oxborough” and will be doing the 6.5km walk for a third time. Her first was when she worked at Hickathrift House Care Home in Marshland St James, where she met Jacky Phipps, who is a member of Norfolk and Suffolk branch of Alzheimer’s Society and established the Sandringham version of the Memory Walk.
Hannah will be joined by Dr Romana Tajammal, Abby Wing, Melanie Underhill, Michelle Lawrence, Wendy Flett, Niamh Bishop, Madeline Burton and Tonicha Patterson.
Hannah said: “We are going to walk as a team to not only raise much-needed funds for this important charity, but also to raise awareness and promote positive understanding.”
The team hopes to raise at least £500. To donate online visit http://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/teamoxboroughqeh
