Snowdonia trek helps care home staff bring in funds for Alzheimers

Bromsgrove Editorial 4th Jul, 2024   0

TWO energetic Bromsgrove care home workers have smashed their charity target thanks to the love and support of friends and colleagues.

Cofton Park Manor Care home colleagues Wendy Sibley and Cassie James completed a 13 miles Snowdonia trek for Alzheimer’s Society raising a massive £700.

Cassie, aged 22, said: “It feels amazing to have achieved a very challenging walk through quite tough terrain, but we kept each other going and were inspired by all our family, friends as well as our wonderful residents at Cofton Park.”

Wendy, aged 53, is a keen walker and when she heard about the challenge last year decided to train for the expedition.

“I love a good challenge and I know how important the work is that the charity does and how passionately everyone at Cofton feels about it.

“Once we decided to do it, there was no stopping us. We’re delighted that we completed it and more than doubled our target thanks to everyone who supported us,” she added.




The colleagues trained together by walking to and from work totalling around four miles a day. They will now hand the cash from the Lickey Road home once all the donations are received.

Home manager Kerry Hill said: “We are very proud of Wendy and Cassie. The Alzheimer’s Society carries out important work in our communities and everyone really got Wendy and Cassie to help them to raise the money.
