HRG staff start Miles Around the World challenge for Alzheimer's Society

Argos and Homebase colleagues across the UK and Ireland are raising money for Alzheimer’s Society and its sister charities by taking part in a Miles Around the World challenge.

From August to October, they will cycle, jump, run, walk, row and even high dive in a bid to clock up 25,000 miles – the distance around the world.

They are calling on customers to cheer them on and help raise money to support people living with dementia to stay at home for longer.

Every mile will go towards helping thousands of people with dementia live full lives in their homes and local communities. Together Alzheimer's Society, Alzheimer Scotland and The Alzheimer Society of Ireland are Argos and Homebase's charity partner 2013 – 2015.

The money raised by Argos and Homebase colleagues and customers will fund Singing for the Brain® groups, Dementia Cafes and Dementia Support services around the UK and Ireland.
