The walk will start from Mallon’s Funeral Home beside the Old Mill on Mill Road in Bessbrook on Sunday 23rd August. The walk will depart from here, follow a marshalled route around the village and will finish at Bessbrook Community Centre, and refreshments will be served afterwards. There will be a short 2K walk and a longer 5K walk and both are suitable for people of all abilities, children, wheelchairs, pushchairs and pooches on leads. Arm in arm, step by step and pound by pound, you can make a difference so big, that one day, no one will have to face this unjust condition. Memory Walk is Alzheimer’s Society’s flagship fundraising event taking place across Northern Ireland this autumn. It is a lovely family day full of fun and entertainment and gives us all the opportunity to highlight the importance of raising awareness around dementia. The money raised will help fund research to find a cure for dementia as well as funding services for people living with the disease. Who will you walk for?
