Local care company gets muddy for Alzheimer’s Society

By on July 26, 2019

Wayne Harper, who manages the Northwich office of at-home care company, Home Instead Senior Care, joined 13 members of his caring team plus hundreds of other people to complete the Delamere Mud Warrior 2019, raising over £400 for the Alzheimer’s Society in the process. 

The 5 mile event took place on Saturday, 6th July in Delamere Forest, and the participants completed the route in the Whitefield part of Delamere Forest which included mud and water for people to work their way through.

The mud didn’t stop the team from another fundraising opportunity, as this past weekend, they took part in the Northwich River Festival 2019. The festival is organised by volunteers from The Northwich Rotary Club, with the support of The Canal and River Trust, Baron’s Quay, The River Weaver Navigation Society, Northwich Town Council, Northwich Business Improvement District (BID) and Cheshire West and Chester Council.  

The Home Instead team jumped into their Dragon Boat and raced between Town Bridge and The ODEON Cinema.

Wayne commented on the fundraising efforts of the team saying, “I am so proud of the team for completing the Delamere Mud Warrior 2019. Five miles through the forest, battling muddy swamps and rough terrain, literally up to their armpits in mud. Well done everyone!! Thanks to the marshals and stewards along the way!”

He also said that taking part in the Northwich River Festival was a ‘great way to support such a fantastic community event.’
