Walk for Alzheimers and dementia

Sunday 14th Apr

Hi, my name is John and I am a carer. I work mainly with people who experience difficulties with alzheimers and dementia. I am walking for everyone like Mike, pictured above, whose lives have been severely affected by these conditions. This disease doesn't just affect the afflicted person but also the family members who care for their loved ones every day.
I would especially like to tell you about Steve, who has struggled for many years with the most aggressive form of dementia and has touched many hearts and lives along the way. I accompany him on jaunts down to the local cafe and I am touched by his enjoyment and pleasure at this simple experience.
These are not just people I work with but also people I can call my friends; they have given me much fulfillment and a realisation of how it touches so many lives.
Please, if you can, donate for this walk in aid of people like Mike and Steve.

Thank you to my Sponsors
