Dementia cafés in Sudbury and Hadleigh benefit from £1,000 cash donations following annual Memory Walk fundraiser




A pair of charities have benefited from a donation of more than £1,000, thanks to fundraising at the annual Sudbury Memory Walk.

The event in May, which saw almost 200 participants walk in solidarity with people living with dementia, supported the Decaf dementia café at The Bridge Project in Sudbury, and the Hadleigh Dementia Action Alliance (HDAA), which helps the Ansell Memories Café.

Each charity received £1055.15, with the HDAA receiving its cheque from Jerry Thatcher, who founded the Sudbury Memory Walk.

Tracey Loynds, development director at Abbeycroft Leisure, which organises the event, said: "The Sudbury Memory Walk continues to grow every year as dementia affects so many families.

"We are extremely proud to support this event as part of our commitment to provide active opportunities for our community."
