Running, walking, swimming and more to help dementia patients

Leamington Editorial 11th Jul, 2021   0

STAFF at Greensleeves Care are taking on a gruelling 500-mile fund-raising challenge to raise £4,000 for Arden House – the charity’s care home in Leamington.

The funds will be used to purchase a ‘magic table’ piece of equipment to improve the quality of life of residents of Arden House who are living with dementia.

The Tovertafel – ‘magic table’ in Dutch – is an interactive tabletop-style piece of equipment designed to stimulate cognition, improve mood and encourage social involvement in people who are living with dementia.

The equipment is proven to stimulate cognition, improve mood, and encourage social involvement in people who are living with dementia.




The challenge involves the team covering 500 miles between them throughout the month of July. It will include walking, running, swimming, cycling, or even roller-skating.

The team will be documenting their progress on Strava throughout the month, so people can watch them reach their target at www.strava.com/clubs/GreensleevesQualit yTeam.
