Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. I work for Home Counties Carers and have a particular interest in caring for elderly clients with dementia. I believe that wherever possible the individual should continue to live life to the full and enjoy all the things they have previously. 

With the onset of dementia people need guidance, support and
understanding. The Contented Dementia Trust uses the "SPECIAL" method which is a unique approach to help carers and family members understand the world through the eyes of the
dementia sufferer and so provide the best quality of care. For more information please visit http://www.contenteddementiatrust.org/

My son and I are attempting to walk The North Downs way from Guildford to Canterbury, covering approximately 15 miles a day in memory of one particular client with whom I feel very privileged to have shared such an important stage of life, and to raise funds to support this great charity. 

The North Downs Way broadly follows the historic Pilgrims Way along the Downs to Canterbury. The first 14 miles are over sandy countryside to the south of the Downs. The Downs are first reached at Newlands Corner, east of Guildford and from there on the Trail mainly follows the crest of the southern escarpment of the North Downs or footpaths and tracks along their lower slopes. There are views over the Weald to the South Downs and several steepish ascents where the ridge is cut by
valleys, notably those of the Mole at Box Hill, the Darent at Otford, the
Medway at Rochester, and the Stour near Wye. 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send
unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
