Join the Richmond Buttercup awareness walk and support Dementia Forward
We are delighted to be supporting Dementia Forward, the leading dementia charity for York and North Yorkshire. On Sunday 10th April, they are hosting the Richmond Buttercup Awareness Walk, and we hope many of our students and their families, staff, alumni, friends and followers may join in. It’s a family-friendly, 3-mile walk, starting at The Station, taking in the Easby loop, before finishing at Richmond Town Hall for refreshments and activities. Parking is available at Richmond School and a mini-bus shuttle will be available if needed. Donations are welcome and sponsorship forms are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are interested in helping on the day, the event organisers are calling out for volunteers to marshall the route, so please contact Amy for further details.
Dementia Forward provide support, advice and information to anybody affected by dementia across the North Yorkshire, and have developed a comprehensive range of services; all with people living with dementia at their heart.
Dementia Forward is recognised as a vital source of information, advice and support as well as being a strong advocate for people living with dementia. They actively seek out the voices of those affected when designing their services, and adopt a ‘local for local’ approach, using the resource of local community and partnership-working to its full. One of the charity’s aims is to ‘knit’ dementia support into the everyday lives of the local community. They aim to increase awareness and understanding, so that people can continue to live well in their own communities.
Their staff team is supported and strengthened by a highly-skilled and motivated board of trustees and committed volunteers, in partnership with the statutory and voluntary sector.
