Margaret House Residential and Dementia care home are delighted to be sponsoring the Stepping Out with Carers walk on Thursday 13 September at St Pauls Walden Bury.
Stepping Out, funded by the National Lottery through Sport England, is a series of scenic, sociable, entertaining walks in some of Britain’s greatest beauty spots, created especially for carers and the people they care for. It’s a mini-break – with all the organisational stresses removed.
Thomas Kelly, Owner of Margaret House said “We are committed to getting more involved with the wider community and sponsoring these walks, which help promote well being, match our ethos of ‘because we care’.
Every venue hosts two walks – a brisker, longer walk around 3 miles for those who want to explore the local scenery and a shorter walk, up to a mile, on easy terrain suitable for anyone in a wheelchair or with mobility issues.
All are guided with local knowledge and expertise by volunteers from the Ramblers. Following the expeditions, all walkers come together for a convivial and communal lunch.
These walks are tailored to specific needs. Benches, disabled loos and pubs are at the forefront of the thinking. Where possible, they also provide free transport (with space for wheelchairs) for those who find it difficult to reach the venue.
