Running a business… literally!

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

In the spirit of hitting the ground running, the new owner of Merry Maids Bromley & Orpington, Richard Wall, is participating in the 13-mile Cambridge Half-Marathon to raise money for Dementia Friends 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 into his commute to Merry Maids Bromley.

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.

About Dementia Friends

Dementia Friends will be receiving support from the ServiceMaster Brands UK family throughout 2022.

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 UK have become dementia friends.

We work closely with all of our clients and are always striving to make sure we can provide them with the best possible support. That’s why, up and down the country, our maid teams have been training to work sensitively and effectively with residents living with Alzheimer’s, and how best to aid them when carrying out our services in their homes. 

Alzheimer’s support is also close to Richard’s heart as his mum lived with dementia for 10 years before she passed away in 2019. Richard says he wants to do all he can to help support what Dementia Friends does to support those living with Alzheimer’s.

Show your support

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.
