Avon Valley Path Charity Walk - 24 miles
Of all the lifestyle changes that have been studied, taking regular physical exercise appears to be one of the best things that you can do to reduce your risk of getting dementia. Therefore we have decided to embark on a 24 mile walk along the Avon Valley Path to raise awareness and support for Dementia Friends.
24 members of Douch Family staff, friends and family are embarking on a 24 mile walk along the Avon Valley Path on the 14th September. The walk will start off in Salisbury and end in Ringwood and will take approximately 8-10 hours. The team will be participating in practice walks leading up to the real event so stay tuned on our social media accounts for updates and more.
10k Ferndown Charity Run
Jon Austin from our Ferndown Branch has just successfully completed the Ferndown Annual 10k run on the 22nd June. Well done Jon. A great time at around the 1 hour mark!! Please give generously to help congratulate Jon. Thank you to the organisers for allowing our Douch team to raise funds for Dementia Friends, rather than the chosen charities for the annual event.
