It's been incredible raising £128,850 for so many charitable projects. Please join us on this years walk and help 3 great causes...

 

This year the Bartlow 3 Counties Charity Walk will be raising funds for the three local causes that possibly have or will at some time have some meaning to you all. For more details on what these chosen charities give back to their community please see below...


Addenbrookes 'Dancing for Health'

Professional dancers are working alongside nursing staff on four different wards at CUH to offer dance activities for patients.

These sessions are shaped around the capacity of patients themselves and are a relaxed way of stimulating movement to music. Patients have been responding incredibly positively and the sessions are being evaluated for their impact on falls prevention, mood and communication and engagement with staff and relatives.

At the Open Day we will be offering a window into these dance sessions so you can see how they work, experience the impact of dance on the body and on mood, and think about how you might incorporate dance into your own life!


Linton Health Centre

At Linton we plan to update the diagnostic equipment used in our consulting rooms. These are essentially the specialised lights used to look into eyes and ears and are a crucial part of making a diagnosis so that we can manage patients accordingly.                                                                     We are very excited that the Bartlow Walk will give us the opportunity to have better equipment, as this will give much improved views and provide better diagnostic accuracy. This will be of benefit to every patient group that we see, from babies with infections, to young children with glue ear, or elderly patients with hearing loss. The equipment will be used on a daily basis and as always we are grateful to the Bartlow Walk for helping us to improve the service we offer our community.


Bartlow St. Mary Church

Sunday by Sunday this Church is used by a small but devoted congregation, and this village of 85 adults and 23 children contributes to the upkeep of this building: help has been forthcoming from the Department of the Environment and we still need more money to repair the windows and decorate the interior. We have received this Church on trust from past generations and we hope to pass it on in good repair. Much has been accomplished but much still needs to be done.
