It is with fascinated delight that I report that a member of our extended Majesticare family, Alex Gasgoynes has completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to raise as much as possible for the Alzheimer’s society. I use the word fascinated, as I can personally think of easier ways to raise money, such as a sponsored cake eating race!
The three peaks challenge takes on the peaks of Pen-yghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, usually in this order, and in under twelve hours. These peaks form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The route is 24 miles long, and includes 5,200ft of ascent.
Majesticare as a Company sponsored Alex’s challenge to raise money for the Alzheimer’s society. As members of the National Dementia Alliance, we join forces with other groups who are supporting and undertaking valuable research into dementia studies, and actively take part in sponsoring both individual and community projects which may lead to enhanced care and treatment for those with dementia and their families. Alex wore his Majesticare T shirt with pride throughout his climb, and Majesticare have corporately sponsored his achievement.
Alex is a relative of one of our Majesticare colleagues. It is truly wonderful that although he does not directly work for us, his passion for dementia care is so clear, and we wish him every bit of luck this weekend. We are proud to say that every single resident, staff member and relative form part of our wider Majesticare family, and we really do take care for one another. Why not join us?
