People are being invited to put on their walking boots and help raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Volunteers have named the date for Rugby’s first ever Memory Walk this September in the hope of raising £1,000.

It takes place on Sunday, September 13, at Draycote Water and is free to enter. The aim of the event is to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society as part of the charity’s national fundraising campaign, and the Rugby Memory Walk will be one of many similar walks taking place all over the country.

Volunteers Charlotte Kertrestel and Gosia Zimna said: “We have both been personally affected by dementia, so feel passionate about raising both money and awareness of the condition which affects so many people in the UK. With the strong community spirit that exists in Rugby, we know that the town will get behind the event to walk for a world without dementia.”
