Memory Box fundraising total...

On Sunday 9th September 2018 Project Manager Erin ran the New Forest Marathon 10k to raise money for The Memory Box Project. The Wessex Heritage Trust collected donations for 2 months through the 8-week training regime and have finalised the total. We manage to raise £427.50 which is a fantastic result!

Erin very much enjoyed the challenge and the whole team at the Wessex Heritage Trust would like to say a big thank you to everyone that has supported this fundraiser.

We will be posting again soon to showcase what we have purchased with these funds and how they have benefitted people living with Dementia in Hampshire.
