The award-winning Bolton Family hosted its first sponsored 10K walk last month to raise funds and awareness for dementia care at Bolton Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
The Mayor of Bolton, Councillor Hilary Fairclough, officially started the walk, which began at Seddon on Plodder Lane. Participants then took a route via Bolton Hospital and Bolton Town Hall before finishing at Asda in Astley Bridge.
Ged Gallagher, head of service policy performance and communication at Bolton Council, said:
“The dementia walk was a great experience. Despite the weather, lots of people joined together to benefit a great cause.
“The funds raised will support dementia care and help people to age well in Bolton. Well done to all who took part.”
Jonathan Seddon, CEO at Seddon said: “Dementia care in the Bolton community is such an important cause, and we are delighted to have played a part in supporting this event.
“The Bolton Family’s long-standing support is felt by all in the area and we look forward to continuing to support these fundraisers in the future.”
It is estimated that the Bolton Family has directly benefitted more than 10,000 people in Bolton as a result of the work carried out since its creation in 2014.
So far, the event has raised over £1,200 and any contribution to help reach the £2,000 target would be greatly appreciated. It is not too late to donate to the dementia walk via the JustGiving link below:
