Julie’s 100 mile Walk for Dementia Friendly Todmorden
The Todmorden based group organise a monthly meal for local people living with Dementia. This consists of afternoon tea and a home cooked meal. Occasionally singers also attend, with classic songs often proving as favourites. Dementia Friendly Todmorden was set up in 2015 by Steph Booth whose husband and retired actor Tony Booth lives with Dementia. However, when her caring responsibilities became too great, police officer Sergeant Neil Taylor took over as Chair of the group as Sergeant Taylor’s dad also has Dementia. The organisation is a place for people living with Dementia, their carers and family members to attend once a month to let their hair down and have some much needed fun. The monthly meets are free for all to attend.
For many, Dementia Friendly Todmorden provides a crucial release from their daily routines. Therefore, in order to keep the events going, the Dementia friendly volunteers hold regular fundraisers. The donations raised by the volunteers go towards an enjoyable day for people living with Dementia.
