A CARE home worker is walking one million steps in honour of care workers who are always on their feet.

50-year-old care home worker, Angela Fowler, who works at Ash Tree House in Hindley, decided to tackle the challenge to raise vital funds to support families living with dementia.

Angela said: “For the past three years I have loved getting to know the residents at Ash Tree House, and how we can support them to lead independent, fulfilling lives.

“I asked myself what else I could do to support others in our community who also live with dementia, who may not have the support that our residents have, which is when I decided to take on the Summer Steps Challenge.”

Chris Durnan, the Home Manager at Ash Tree House, said: “We’re all really proud of Angela for taking up this challenge, and we know that she will put her all into it. Angela is a huge advocate for people living with dementia, so I’m sure this won’t be the last challenge she tackles.”

Angela is now well over halfway through her Summer Steps Challenge.
