Trekking for Alzheimer’s

March 26th 2019

Curious Agency’s Nish Wickramasinghe and his partner Cerys are undertaking a charity walk in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society.

The couple will be raising money by taking part in a 13-mile trek in the Lake District on 20 July. Both have had family members affected by the condition, so it’s a cause that’s close to their hearts.

Nish said: “Any pennies are welcome. This is tough for us both because my knee has only just recovered from two years of ongoing damage and surgery, and Cerys has never done anything like this before. I expect tears and tantrums (all from me).”

The Alzheimer’s Society is dedicated to transforming the landscape of dementia and creating a society where those affected by dementia are supported and accepted. If you’d like to contribute, visit Nish’s Just Giving page.

Harborough Innovation Centre is owned and supported by Harborough District Council (HDC). As the building owner HDC also funds the Centre’s business support provision, providing the basis for expert business advice, mentoring and workshops.
