Pupils and staff to walk 1,000km to support those with dementia

PUPILS and staff at Lathom Park school in Ormskirk are aiming to walk 1,000km to raise awareness and to support families who are affected by dementia.

One of their teachers, Mrs Randall's mum, Barbara, had Alzheimer’s and recently died.

A spokesperson for the school said: “We dedicate this event in her memory and for all other families, and to raise as much money as we can to support this cause.

“We have a therapy dog in school called Otis, who is our Paw Patrol mascot, and he will be joined by his friends Rory, Lily and Pablo along with all the children in school.

“Please walk on their behalf with your own dogs if you can and donate whatever you can afford.”

To donate, visit the JustGiving website and search for ‘Lathom Park School’.
