Bedell Cristin is supporting the Jersey Alzheimer’s Association’s (JAA) latest fundraising initiative; a Memory Walk on Sunday 14 April.
The walk will begin at La Fregate and end at St Aubin covering around 5km across the coast. Families, groups and individuals are encouraged to take part at their chosen pace with the option to continue to La Corbiere.
The JAA supports islanders affected by dementia by providing advice, support and information to the community through counselling, family support services and awareness sessions for schools, community groups and organisations.
“JAA are working hard to raise awareness and make Jersey a truly dementia friendly island” said JAA Chief Executive Sean Pontin.
“The generous support of Bedell Cristin in sponsoring our first Memory Walk means that we can continue to build on and improve the services we’re able to offer to islanders and families of all ages affected by dementia.”
Bedell Cristin managing partner David Cadin commented: “Bedell Cristin is proud to sponsor the JAA through the Memory Walk.
“Dementia affects so many islanders and the support provided through the JAA for individuals and their families can be vital in managing the disease.
“We encourage people to take up the challenge and walk for a worthy cause.”
