Anya Court Team Members to Climb Snowdon In Aid of Alzheimer’s Society

Two brave team members at Anya Court Care Home in Rugby are tackling Wales’ highest mountain in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society.

Customer Relationship Manager, Karen Handley and Business Administrator, Sarah Connaire have already raised nearly £1,000 between them for the charity which works to improve the quality of life of people affected by dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The daring pair have raised the money by hosting a charity bake sale, pizza quiz night and an Easter raffle at the home which specialises in residential, nursing and dementia care.

Karen and Sarah, who have never climbed a mountain before have trained for the 1085 metre summit by participating in lots of walking around the Yorkshire Dales and Derbyshire as a team.

Sarah Connaire said: “It’s a cause close to our heart. We have seen a lot of people affected by the condition since the home opened its doors.”

Karen Handley said: “We are two desk bound ladies who could do with getting fit. Climbing the mountain together is also a great opportunity for us to bond as a team.”

Karen, who is also a Dementia Champion at the home added: “If all goes well, our next challenge will be to walk from Durrington Wales to Stone Henge.”

The determined ladies are expected to climb the gruelling peak which is expected to take nine hours on the 15th May.
