Reaching a new peak for Age Concern

Caley and Michael climbed Mount Snowdon on 23rd August to raise funds for Age Concern. Caley's grandfather attends the Day Centre and Caley wanted to give something back to the organisation that "gave her back a bit of her granddad"

The climb took nine hours in torrential rain and at times they were on their hands and knees. Caley reported "It was the most physically and mentally challenging thing I have ever done. The final ascent to the summit was an absolute killer, but the view was amazing!"

Mike works for the National Grid and they have pledged to match donations up to £400. Mike and Caley hope to raise £1000 which is a tremendous achievement.

It’s all coming up Roses!

Barry Craske donated an electric wheelchair to the Day Centre.

A delightful lady called Sylvia (86 years young) is now the new owner. Sylvia received an “as new” wheelchair and can now get around and was delighted that Age Concern would receive her £200 donation.

Both of Barry’s parents have attended the Day Centre and he is thrilled that this money is being put towards a dementia friendly garden area incorporating a bird bath and scented roses.

Big thanks go to Sun Mobility of Lower Early who sold the wheelchair on our behalf.
