Volunteers get down and dirty for charity

Stratford Editorial 17th Feb, 2019   0

THERE was mud, sweat and tears when volunteers got down and dirty for charity.

Staff from Santander in Stratford tackled the ‘Mudnificent 7’ – a mud run fund-raiser for the Warwickshire Reminiscence Action Project (WRAP), which supports families living with dementia.

Apprentice Paige Stockil, colleague Matthew Hill and friend Owen Visser, raised nearly £400 – matched by Santander, bringing the total to £742.50.

The cash will be spent on new chairs for WRAP’s cafes in Bishopton and Wellesbourne which offer respite to those caring for loved ones with dementia.

Staff also held a raffle in branch, selling tickets to customers.”

WRAP secretary Mike Strophair thanked the team.

The charity runs dementia training courses for carers of people living with dementia, as well as ‘reminiscence’ workshops which help spark memories.
