Our Chief Executive Clive Cook will be walking the famous Camino de Santiago to raise funds for Moorside, our specialist Dementia Care Home in the heart of the City Centre.
Also known as The Way of St James, the 492 mile/791 km walk will be completed over the course of five demanding weeks. Clive will walk an average of 17 miles a day along the most popular French route (Camino Frances)!
Where? Starting from St Jean de Pied de Port in the foothills of the Pyrenees, ending at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, Galicia (north-western Spain).
When? 25th August – 29th September 2018
Why? The 492 mile walk is to raise funds for our Charity’s Tovertafels and other dementia sensory equipment for Moorside.
What is a Tovertafel? A ‘magic table’ projector – fun, innovative technology, changing the way people living with dementia connect with others. The tovertafel box projects playful images and interactive games, stimulates physical and cognitive activity, and encourages social interaction.
