The team at Osbourne Court we’re all getting behind our Magic Moments team member Carol who is taking part in Dementia UK’s March Dog Walking Challenge with her Chihuahua, Boo.

Carol and Boo have already completed half of the 100km and hope to raise £150 for the charity which is very close to her heart. She explained:
“My nanny has dementia and I work closely with a resident here at Osborne Court who is living with dementia so raising money and awareness for Dementia UK means such a lot to me. The charity trains Admiral Nurses who give specialist support for families and help them to live more positively despite the challenges that a diagnosis of dementia can bring”  commented Carol.

Resident, Joyce, said: “We are all so proud of them both for taking part in this challenge and are delighted to support them to hopefully help raise lots of money for this fantastic charity. Carol has been telling us all how much Boo is enjoying all her walks and how excited she gets when she says ‘walkies’! Once the pandemic is over we’re all looking forward to meeting Boo and enjoying a cuddle.”
