Memory walks

by | 8 August 2021 | Local Charity, Retford

Nottinghamshire residents are being invited to don their walking gear, lace up their boots, and unite against dementia by signing up to one of two local Alzheimer’s Society Memory Walks this autumn.
Hundreds of Alzheimer’s Society supporters will put their best foot forward at Wollaton Park on 12th September and Clumber Park on 3rd October, alongside family, friends and colleagues to raise money for the charity.
Over a year since the pandemic began, people with dementia are still bearing the brunt of coronavirus and demand for Alzheimer’s Society’s services is still increasing. Memory Walk will bring together people who have been personally affected by dementia, those who want to walk to remember a loved one, and people looking for a fun-filled activity to raise money for charity.
Supporters can also opt to walk on their own, or with loved ones, on the paths, pavements, parks or pebbles at an organised walk, or they can also choose to participate in a virtual walk on a route of their own choosing with loved ones. By marching out in support of Alzheimer’s Society, walkers will raise crucial funds to help the charity reach more people through its vital services, like the Dementia Connect support line, which have been used more than five million times since March 2020.
