Running a business… literally!

Join us in supporting Merry Maids Bromley owner Richard Wall in running the Cambridge Half-Marathon in aid of Dementia Friends this March.

In the spirit of hitting the ground running, new Merry Maids business owner Richard Wall will be participating in a 13-mile run for charity on 6th March. This comes following Richard’s recent participation in the 26-mile Brighton marathon, which, along with his regular training, has prepared Richard well. It has also tied into to his new business, as he has been able to incorporate his training in with his commute to Merry Maids Bromley.

Richard running a business and running a mile… or a few more in training for the half marathon!


Richard’s giving nature has gelled well with Merry Maids and his support-based approach to running his team is no better exemplified by his running in aid of supporting Dementia Friends. This is a charity that will be receiving support from the ServiceMaster brand family throughout 2022. And it is also close to Richard’s heart, as his mum lived with dementia for 10 years before she passed away in 2019. Thus, Richard says he wants to do all he can to help support what Dementia Friends does to support those living with Alzheimer’s.

About Dementia Friends

Dementia Friends is an initiative aiming to change the perception of dementia. Based around learning more about dementia, they strive to create a better quality of life for those living with the condition. Dementia Friends advocates the conversion of information to action to make a change. They do this by providing information about the reality of living with dementia on their website. They then encourage turning this information into action by becoming a Dementia Friend. Part of what they do also involves partnering with brands, and in 2022, Merry Maids and the ServiceMaster brand family, has become Dementia Friend. Keep your eyes out for more of our fundraisers and events in aid of this good cause throughout the year. In learning more about the condition, we have also been able to convert information to action, as our services are dementia friendly.
