Alzheimer Scotland Memory Walks: Step by step, we’re making a difference

LAST year, The Sunday Post teamed up with Alzheimer Scotland to support the charity’s Memory Walks.

The partnership was a massive success, with a record number of walkers taking part around the country, raising more than £220,000 and increasing awareness of a vital cause.

The great news is that we’re doing it all again this year – and we’re asking you to make it bigger and better than ever before.

There will be Memory Walks taking place at 17 locations throughout Scotland – from Inverness to the Borders – during August and September.

Whether you stride, stroll or toddle, Memory Walks provide a great opportunity for people to come together to celebrate loved ones affected by dementia and raise vital funds needed to deliver essential support services across the country.

It costs Alzheimer Scotland more than £115,000 every week to maintain their current community work.

And there is an ever-increasing demand on services.

More than 90,000 people are living with dementia in Scotland – a number that will double in a generation.

Much more money is needed to make sure no one has to face dementia alone.

People of all ages and abilities can join in on a Memory Walk.

Rally your friends, family and colleagues and sign up for a fun, family day out at an Alzheimer Scotland Memory Walk this summer.

Step by step, pound by pound, let’s start walking and make a big difference.
