Current Fundraising events
Kerry’s Half Marathon
One of our Dementia Advisers, Kerry Hyatt, is running the Oxford Half Marathon on the 16th October 2022.
Despite being told she’d be unlikely to run long distances following breaking both legs after being hit by a car in 2012, Kerry is determined to run a half marathon and raise money for Dementia Oxfordshire along the way.
Finders Keepers 50th Anniversary
For Finders Keepers 50th Anniversary, they are aiming to raise £50,000 for three Oxfordshire charities. They have selected Dementia Oxfordshire alongside Sobell House and Oxfordshire Mind.
Keep an eye out for updates on events and ways to get involved.
