A loving granddaughter from Gidea Park has commemorated her Nan.
Emma Gill, 25, has raised money for the charity Alzheimer’s Society by taking part in a Memory Walk recently in Thorndon County Park, Ilford.
She said: “My Nan was always a great inspiration to me and she always will be”.
Emma’s had suffered from the disease for the last five years of her life before she died in July last year.
It was because of her Nanny Jines that she wanted to work with Alzheimer patients and so has been working at the Sherrell House Care Centre in Chigwell for the past three years.
Emma ran alongside her mum Tracey Jines, 48, from Marks gate, for the charity and has run for Cancer Research UK and last year she climbed Mount Snowdon for Marie Curie Cancer.
Emma and her mum raised £150 for the Alzheimer’s Society and added: “Nanny is missed by all the family”.
