“We hope this £375 raised will go a long way to supporting those living with dementia here in Havering.”

The director of a Havering care agency took part in an Alzheimer’s Society Memory Walk and raised more than £350 for charity.

Alvin Osei-Tutu, Managing director and owner of Bluebird Care Havering raised £375 last Saturday (September 22) to support those living with dementia.

A Memory Walk is a sponsored walk for all ages and abilities to unite together to raise money to defeat dementia.

the walks are spread across England, Wales and Northern Ireland and each walk will take on a different route through either a city, woodlands or a park.

This year over 110,000 people are expected to take part in walks - united, against dementia.

After the walk Alvin said: “Currently there are 850,000 people in the UK with dementia and this number is set to rise. The Alzheimer’s Society are leading the fight against dementia and we at Bluebird Care are 100% behind them!

“Dementia affects us all at some point in our lives, so raising awareness of the condition at events like Memory Walks is so important.”

“We hope this £375 raised will go a long way to supporting those living with dementia here in Havering.”
