Staff from our Midlands Project Office were again proud to be involved with the annual Cannock Chase Alzheimer’s Society Memory Walk, with this year proving to be the biggest event yet.
Organisers and ETS volunteers alike are celebrating after numbers doubled for last weekend’s event. More than 1,100 took part, which is almost double the number of attendees who attended in 2013.
The society organises these sponsored walks throughout the UK as a way of raising much needed funds to help people living with Dementia and to help research into finding a cure.
Hundreds of people turned up for the walk, including some famous faces including former They Think It’s All Over presenter Nick Hancock, a couple of Wolverhampton Wanderers players and BBC news presenters.
All in all the event was a great success and around £45,000 is hoped to have been raised.
