    Weʼve raised £2,228 to help fund a new charity, Bloomin Dementia

    Nottingham, United Kingdom
    Funded on Tuesday, 28th November 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Welcome to the Walking With Dementia - From the Forest, With the Forest, To the Forest!

    At 2 pm on Sunday 27th August, a team will be walking 5K from the Forest Recreation Ground to Nottingham Forest FC to raise funds for our brand new charity - Bloomin 'Dementia.

    The idea is to walk with some of those unfortunate to have dementia... for the participants this is most appealing! It will show that together we can do something so positive to help sufferers of this heart-breaking disease!

    Bloomin' Dementia has been formed to give a better quality of life to both sufferers and their families. We will use funds to help the individual remain part of everyday society, taking some of the burden away from the loved ones, who suffer equally as much. We believe this is a unique approach. Most charities although being very worthwhile themselves put funds soley into research.

    The walk itself has really captured the imagination and will take in some of the history of Nottingham Forest by passing significant related landmarks on the way through Nottingham City Centre.

    On the day we will also be joined by some the legends of the European Cup Winning team of the late 70's. Theses guys are more than happy to be part of our team effort! It all makes for a great occasion!

    The walk will be fun, inclusive, very entertaining and, of course very worthwhile... we will of course be raising vital funds but also spreading the word about dementia and our charity.

    If you would like to take part all we ask is that you pay a £10 race fee... we promise lots of value in terms of goody bags, t-shirts, food, water, entertainment etc. And to raise a minimum of £50 via this Just Giving Page... We will then do all we can to create a real event day experience! Any more than £50 would be a real bonus but gratefully appreciated!

    For further details please contact Des Oldham on 07522 837721 or

    Our aim is to be such a success, that we have no option other than to make Walking with Dementia an annual event. It would be great to say you was there from the beginning!
