Dementia UK & Avante Partnership – Fundraising Event
13th June – 15th June 2014
24 Peaks in 24 Hours! with Richard Macintyre
This exciting challenge I am undertaking in June 2014 will have me trekking up and down 24 peaks in the Lake District in a mere 24 hours.
The Lake District is home to some of the most rugged and challenging mountains in Britain giving it a reputation as one of the best natural adventure play grounds in the U.K. This is a challenging trek both mentally and physically with long days of trekking, coupled with stunning views of the Lake District and a fantastic sense of achievement when I have completed it.
The purpose of the trek is to raise funds for the Avante Admiral Nursing Service which Avante and Dementia UK are working in partnership for the three years of the project. The funding comes for year one from the Peoples Health Lottery and year two and three from Avante Partnership and Dementia UK. Any monies raised will help offset the funding for year two and three and also raise the profile of both charities in caring and supporting for those with Dementia type conditions.
The secondary reason for the event is to raise the profile of both organisations in the care and support for people on the Dementia journey.
Keep an eye out for more information in future with updates from Richard.
