50-year-old care home worker, Angela Fowler, is taking on Dementia UK’s Summer Steps Challenge, walking one million steps from June to August.
Angela, who works at Ash Tree House in Wigan, decided to tackle the challenge in honour of care workers across the UK who are always on their feet, and to raise vital funds to support families living with dementia. Angela said,
‘For the past three years I have loved getting to know the residents at Ash Tree House, and how we can support them to lead independent, fulfilling lives.
‘I asked myself what else I could do to support others in our community who also live with dementia, who may not have the support that our residents have, which is when I decided to take on the Summer Steps Challenge!’
Chris Durnan, the Home Manager at Ash Tree House, said, ‘We’re all really proud of Angela for taking up this challenge, and we know that she will put her all into it. Angela is a huge advocate for people living with dementia, so I’m sure this won’t be the last challenge she tackles.’
Angela is now well over halfway through her Summer Steps Challenge. To donate to her Dementia UK fundraiser, please visit her Just Giving fundraising page here.
