Sophie's Jungle Challenge for Dementia Care Awareness


Wednesday 5th February 2014

Sophie StoreyOn 27th February, SLC Childcare student Sophie Storey will be flying to Bangkok in Thailand for a once in a life-time adventure. 

Sophie will be joining a group who will spend 6 days trekking, rafting and kayaking through the mountains and forests of the Thung Ya Nareusan Wildlife Sanctuary. They will follow the death railway crossing the famous bridge over the River Kwai and each night will make camp in remote villages.

Sophie is undertaking this trip to help raise awareness and sponsorship for the increasing number of Dementia sufferers in our local area. “I'm going on this Jungle Trek with my mum, Karen Storey, for MHA (Methodist Homes) because they specialise in good quality Dementia Care. The trek will help us to understand what life is like for a person living with dementia. We will be in a strange place, having to trust people around us to keep us safe and to guide us.”

Every person living with dementia at some time has a personality trapped inside waiting to shine and that's where your donations can make a huge difference. All donations gratefully received through sponsor forms and the just giving website go directly to the residents at the homes.
