On Saturday 23rd March, 5 staff from Junior World stepped out of their comfort zone and took part in a ‘Zip Wire Challenge’ to raise funds for Alzheimer Scotland. Centre Manager Jayne Macintosh was delighted when some of her team agreed to take part in the challenge alongside her and together successfully raised over £500.
Not only is this charity significant to Jayne personally, having lost her Dad two years ago to this crippling disease. Importantly, Junior World’s ongoing commitment to its Intergenerational Projects has further highlighted the challenges faced by individuals and their families coping with Alzheimer’s.
Although a bit chilly, the sun shone all day and a great day was had by all. We would like to thank everyone for their support and contributions. Junior World have raised funds and contributed to 4 charitable organisations this year and welcome any suggestions for future fundraising challenges.
