Annual Sudbury Memory Walk brought forward to new earlier date
An annual fundraiser in Sudbury, held in support of dementia organisations, has been brought forward by several months, following the success of previous events.
The Sudbury Memory Walk, which has taken place every October for the last three years, has been moved and will now take place on Saturday, May 25, at 11am, starting and ending at the Kingfisher Leisure Centre.
Organiser Lisa Dagnall, of Abbeycroft Leisure, said: “We thought it would be a great opportunity to move the date to tie in with both national Dementia Action Week, as well as coinciding with the first Move Suffolk Week, which aims to get people moving.”
The free event, founded by Jerry Thatcher, whose mother developed vascular dementia, will be collecting donations for the Decaf memory café in Sudbury and Hadleigh Dementia Alliance.
