Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is appealing for local people to join their Dementia Memory Walk to raise money for the Trust’s Dementia Care Appeal and the Alzheimer’s Society.
The sponsored walk will be held in Sherwood Forest Country Park in Edwinstowe on Sunday 18 May 2014 from 10.30am. Participants can choose from one of three routes which range from 1 to 3 ½ miles. For those who would like to be involved but would rather not undertake one of the walks, the Trust is also looking for volunteers to help out on the day.
Currently there are more than 800,000 diagnosed cases of dementia in the UK and an estimated 42% of the population has a close friend or family member living with dementia.
