Volunteers wanted to help with the ARUK Explorer Hike on 3rd May 2020

Alzheimers Research UK (ARUK) is organising a sponsored 21-mile walk on Sunday 3rd May and has asked for help:

The ARUK Explorer hike is coming to Cambridge!

Hundreds of people will walk 21 miles of Cambridge’s vibrant city and idyllic Fen countryside on this flat and picturesque route.

Some of your members may already have signed up to take part in the event, but others may  want to be involved because they love walking or running, like meeting new people and/or because they have personal experience of Alzheimer’s Disease or other forms of dementia and want to help in some way.  If so, we’d love to have them volunteer with us to help make this new event a success!

For more information and to apply, please visit:  www.alzheimersresearchuk.org/volunteering/event-volunteer

Sad news – Dorrie Jones

Club members will be very sad to learn that Dorrie Jones died at home on December 17th. Her funeral is on Wednesday 29th January at St Mary’s Church Withersfield. We understand that Dorrie had not been well for a number of years.

Dorrie was a ‘larger than life’ character and contributed a great deal to Club walks and went on both hostel and coach trips away from Cambridge. After she stopped walking with us Dorrie was keen on visiting ‘open gardens’.
