Andrew Jones MP said:
Last year’s event raised nearly £2,000. It was the first event of its kind in Harrogate. This year we are aiming to be bigger and better with more people doing the walk and a target of £5,000. Our aim is that arm in arm, step by step and pound by pound, we can walk to raise money for services and vital research.
Memory Walks are the Alzheimer’s Society’s flagship fundraising events taking place across England, Wales and Northern Ireland this autumn. The event in the Valley Gardens is a collaboration between Mr Jones, the Alzheimer’s Society and Harrogate Borough Council. Last year’s event saw Emmerdale’s vicar, Ashley Thomas join Andrew to start the walk.
The money raised will help fund research to find a cure for dementia as well as funding services for people living with the disease.
