Brackley Care Home manager Sheena Croston and two members of staff took part in the Alzheimer’s Society’s Memory Walk on Saturday, raising £165 for the charity through sponsorship.

Starting from the nursing home, in Wellington Road, they completed an 8km loop around the town, going past Winchester House School whose pupils had sent them ‘good luck’ posters.

On their return they were rewarded with eggs and bacon and sausage sandwiches.

Customer relations manager Julie Wilson, who joined the walk, said: “One of the units in our home is named the Sir Tom Moore Suite so we could not have had greater inspiration.

“When we passed the gates of Winchester House school we were cheered on by staff and pupils.”

The third member of the fund-raising team was nurse Anita Foldi-Piontkovska who brought along her French bulldog Jobo.
