Volunteer appeal for Humber Bridge Memory Walk


Volunteers are being urged to sign up for Humber Bridge Memory Walk to help support more than 1,500 people expected to register to fight for a world without dementia.

Hundreds of walkers have already stepped forward to take part and Alzheimer’s Society is looking to treble the number of helpers recruited up to now for the event, which is on Saturday September 10.

Rebecca Scott, Alzheimer’s Society Memory Walk Officer, said: “We rely on people giving their time to help us to create a wonderful day and while many have already come forward we need a lot more.

“More than 30 volunteers have put their names in as helpers at Humber Bridge Memory Walk, where we want to find a happy 100 to assist a tide of people walking for a world without dementia.

“Helpers provide support in a variety of roles and we have something to suit everyone ranging from marshalling to handing out medals to walkers completing the six kilometre route.

“Memory Walk is a vital part of raising money for Alzheimer’s Society to fund research and provide services for people living with dementia,” said Rebecca. “Walkers and volunteers can sign up at memorywalk.org.uk.”
