Helping to Support Memory Matters
Memory Matters South West CIC is a Community Interest Company, based in the South West of England. The organisation is run by qualified nurses and social entrepreneurs, Laura Walker and Kate Smith. Memory Matters helps to improve the lives of people living with dementia through CST (Cognitive Stimulation Therapy) workshops, as well as Moments, our Community Café in Plymouth. We trade for public benefit rather than private gain and all of our projects and services are designed, developed and built on the needs of those living with dementia.
On Saturday 6th July 2019, Daron (Laura’s Husband) and Tom and Joe (Laura’s Brothers), embarked on the National Three Peaks Challenge. Within the space of 24 hours they climbed Ben Nevis (Scotland), Scafell Pike (England) and Snowdon (Wales). The trio had never done anything like this before, but they were happy to accept the challenge – even on one of the hottest days of the year!
They decided to climb the Three Peaks so they could raise money for Memory Matters and support Laura as a wife as well as a sister. They have witnessed the hard work both Laura and Kate have put into the company over the past 10 years and they want to help them continue on this path, so they are able to carry on supporting people living with dementia.
Daron, Tom and Joe have managed to raise £695 as a result of their amazing achievement and we are so grateful for their support. You can still help them raise money for this fantastic cause by clicking here. All donations will be appreciated, however big or small. Every little helps!
