The Scunthorpe local memory walk took place today (Sunday 7th Sept) at Central Park. The sun shined and money was raised. A big well done to all the fundraisers who took part and helped to raise awareness and funds for the cause.
The Memory Walk is the Society’s flagship fundraising event. It is a chance for family and friends to get together and join thousands of others across the UK, all walking with one common goal: to fight dementia.
Alzheimer’s Society supports people to live well with dementia today and funds research to find a cure for tomorrow.
Share and celebrate someone special with a community feel, small in size but special for everyone who comes. Whichever walk you choose and wherever you walk with the Alzheimer’s Society helps raise much-needed funds for people in your area with dementia.
The photos were taken kindly by our dear friend Yasmin Sowerby who took part who along with her sister Shania Sowerby and managed to raise £135 as a pair. It’s not to late to donate. https://www.justgiving.com/yasminsmemorywalkbrenda
Here is why they did the walk today:
I will be doing the Memory Walk for my Nana, Brenda Kirk who is 92 and suffers from Alzheimer’s. She has worked hard throughout her life helping and supporting others and I hope to do the same by taking part in this walk. Although she struggles with day to day tasks she always remains happy and loving. She is an inspiration to me and I am proud to call her my Nana.
