Alzheimer’s Society and Minehead Dementia Action Alliance
For 2017 Cranmers Optometrists have been committed to raising funds for the Alzheimer’s Society and Minehead Dementia Action Alliance. Our first sponsorship event was a 200 mile spinning bike challenge in the practice on 7th June. We cycled for over 7 hrs and raised £800. A week later we got baking and had a cupcake day which raised £100. Our patients and staff all enjoyed a day of eating cakes and drinking tea!
Our most recent challenge was a 20 mile memory walk over the glorious hills of Exmoor, finishing at Minehead seafront. We were blessed with fabulous weather and we were joined by members of Minehead Dementia Action Alliance, our dedicated staff and their much loved dogs! We have had great fun raising money for these well deserving charities this summer. For further information on the Alzheimer’s Society please click on the link below.
3 Times Paralympian, Beijing 2008, London 2012, Rio 2016 and 2 times Paralympic bronze medal winner
Cranmer’s have been proud sponsors of wheelchair tennis athlete Lucy Shuker since 2008. Lucy’s career has spanned 3 Paralympic Games. She is a bronze medal winner from Rio 2016 and the current World Masters double champion.
It has been an honour to provide Lucy with specialist sports performance eye-wear and financial support. In return all the team at Cranmer’s have been rewarded with a friendship from Lucy that has shown us all courage in the face of adversity, dedication and turning your dreams into reality.
Sat courtside at the London 2012 Olympics watching Lucy achieve her first Paralympic medal goes down as one of the most humbling experiences of my life.
