A team from Care In Hand took on the Four Peaks Challenge to support The Alzheimer`s Society and raised an impressive £3,000 towards the £30,000 raised by the Challenge for the Society. The successful Care in Hand team were (from left to right) Emmett Dunne, Sheena Umanee & Ben Perkins.

Through the course of our working day, our carers visit many people who are suffering from dementia, so choosing to support the Alzheimer`s Society was an easy choice.  The Society supports people to live well with dementia today and funds research to find a cure for tomorrow.  More people affected by dementia turn to the Society for help than to any other charity.

Ben Perkins states "The team really enjoyed trekking in the awe inspiring Lake District National Park and reaching the tops of some of the highest mountains in England. Taking part in this challenge was a great way to motivate not only myself but the team members and improve our overall fitness, whilst at the same time helping to change the lives of people living with dementia".
