Staff from Rodney House residential home have raised £300 for the Alzheimer's Society.
The Weston home, in Trewartha Park, looks after patients with different levels of dementia.
Eight members of its staff, and house dog Pixie, took part in the Bristol Memory Walk on October 9 to raise money for the Alzheimer’s care charity.
The society supports people living with dementia and funds research to find a cure.
The home’s care manager Jemma Smith said: “We did a zumba class to begin with and then completed a 6km walk around the harbour.
“We are still counting the amount raised but so far we have raised £300.”
Research shows almost 1,800 people in Weston and more than 9,000 people across Somerset are living with dementia.
