Story

We are tackling the sizable challenge of doing one million steps in seven days as we look to raise money for our charity partner Dementia UK as we support its 24/7 Challenge.

The charity has been running the 24/7 initiative to raise funds for dementia nurses throughout August as it reminds people that the need for specialist dementia support doesn’t stop during a pandemic.

Families facing dementia need support now more than ever to help them cope with the double difficulty of dementia and the coronavirus – for these families it really is a 24/7 challenge.

We are a brand-new team, so  even when we cannot be together as we continue to work remotely from home during the pandemic we can raise money for this great charity as well as supporting the team’s mental and physical wellbeing.

Like many charities Dementia are facing a really challenging situation at the moment with a dip in donations during COVID-19 so we really want to support them.

We came up with doing one million steps in one week based on the idea that the team will be walking a combined total of 24 hours every day and visiting our most eastern, northern, western an southern locations

We will all record our steps in the same mobile app, so we can see each day where we are and keep on track. We are aiming to raise £1,000 for this great cause.
