As a school, we are working towards creating a dementia-friendly community in Horncastle and the surrounding area.  We have been delighted to host several Dementia Friends information sessions for various year groups throughout the course of the year. These courses are provided free of charge by the Alzheimer’s Society, and in order to demonstrate our thanks for their support we organised two Memory Walks. Last week about 40 Year 9 and Year 12 students walked around Horncastle on a beautiful sunny day and this week it was the Year 8s and Year 10s who walked along the Viking Way for 5.5 miles to raise funds for this fantastic charity. In order to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society, we have set up a Just Giving page (https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/qegsmemorywalk2018) and any sponsorship will go directly to the Alzheimer’s Society. My thanks go to everybody who took part and made this walk possible.
