Tracy’s 100 km South Coast Challenge
July 4, 2019
Our housekeeping manager, Tracy Creagh, is taking part in the 2019 South Coast Challenge, in aid of The Alzheimer’s Society.
The 48-hour gruelling event starting on August 31 in Eastbourne will cover 100 km across Sussex’s most iconic landmarks including Beachy Head, the Seven Sisters Devil’s Dyke, South Ease, Brighton and finishing in Arundel.
Tracy 32, has been inspired to fundraise for The Alzheimer’s Society by the residents at Clifden House Dementia Care Centre, where she has worked since January 2013.
Tracy said: “Over the last six years I have learnt so much about dementia and the impact it has, not only on the person but also their extended family and friends. I want to raise as much as I can to support the pioneering research being carried out by The Alzheimer’s Society to help improve the understanding and treatment of the disease.”
To help reach Tracy’s goal of £600, we are hosting a fundraising party on Thursday 25, July, from 1pm. As well as a cream tea and refreshments there will be entertainment provided by the ‘Yesterdays’ singing group.
Nial Joyce of Clifden House said: “We are all inspired by Tracy and her determination to complete this challenge. She has taken part in various events in the past for good causes, including a number of ‘Race for Life’ runs and even a skydive. Tracy is a very popular member of the team here at Clifden House and we hope to see lots of family and friends at our fundraising afternoon in July. We all really want to help raise funds for this great cause and get Tracy to her target.”
