We’re Walking for Dementia, Are You?
It’s our first fundraiser of this kind and is shaping up to be a fun filled, action packed afternoon.
We have a guided loop around the recently opened Red Zone (Otakaro Avon River Corridor), specially created for us by the team from Avon Otakaro Network, who will take us through a little history, and a little of the exciting things planned for the area, proudly showing you around the regenerated space we can all use and experience.
The stunning Avebury House grounds are the starting point for our amble, and will be the place where we gather to celebrate. We have some wonderful activities for you to enjoy, Acappella and entertainment on the lawn, local businesses showcasing their wares, Devonshire Teas and refreshments on offer, and of course the good old Kiwi Sausage Sizzle.
The walks are in two parts, so if the first is enough, you can relax with a guided tour of the house, and take in the ambience of the grounds.
We are encouraging you to get behind this event and go all out, get a theme going with your family or colleagues, dress up in company colours, wear a hat or a feather boa, whatever takes your fancy! All we ask is that you set to with some sponsorship in memory of, or in aid of someone living with dementia.
A Give A Little page is easy to create, and gets your message of support out to your networks or, if you’re not technically minded, you can ask family and friends for pledges in support of your ‘Red Zone Ramble’ (the old school way!)
And get ready to partake in some of the great things we have featured. There may be a high-profile Cantabrian or too, and you may even be able to go for a jaunt around the block in a classic car with one or two, if the stroll seems too much like exercise!
The Mayor of Christchurch, Hon. Lianne Dalziel, has decided this is an afternoon she doesn’t want to miss, and you should too. Your presence and support are needed to help make this event a success, and you can do that in several ways.
