Care workers set to skydive in aid of Alzheimer’s Research UK

Five brave care workers from Chamberlain Court, our care home in Royal Tunbridge Wells are set to take to the skies to raise money for Alzheimer’s Research UK.

Stephen Callis, Charlotte Chart, Richard Hook, Lara Oshiyemi and Petko Getsov who work at our residential, nursing and dementia home will jump from a hair-raising 12,000ft at Headcorn airfield.

They are tackling the momentous challenge to raise awareness and funds to fuel life-changing dementia research.

And with just less than one week to go they have already exceeded their ambitious £2,000 target.

Lifestyle Leader at Chamberlain Court Care Home, Stephen Callis said: “We are absolutely delighted to be fundraising for this vital charity. As we care for residents living with dementia, we have seen first-hand the devastating effects it can have on an individual and their loved ones which is why we wholly support Alzheimer’s Research UK’s mission to bring about the first-life changing dementia treatment by 2025.

“We would also like to take the opportunity to say thank you. We have had a tremendous amount of support from our colleagues at Chamberlain Court, friends and family of the residents and the wider community. We are really grateful and are all now counting down the days until the big jump!”

Katy Abraham, Corporate Partnerships Officer at Alzheimer’s Research UK, said: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to all the brave people from Chamberlain Court Care Home who are going to be jumping out of a plane in aid of dementia research! They are really going above and beyond to support Alzheimer’s Research UK and we’re so grateful.

“With 1,630 people living with dementia in Tunbridge Wells, it’s crucial that we invest in the very best research, so we can bring about the life-changing treatments we need for this devastating condition. Thanks to our amazing fundraisers like these, we will be able to defeat dementia sooner.”

The determined group will complete the skydive which is expected to last 45 seconds on Wednesday 11th July.
