Fundraisers are being urged to sign up for a charity walk to raise money for a leading dementia charity.

Alzheimer Scotland’s Memory Walk will take place in Hazlehead Park on Sunday September 18 .

All funds raised through the event will help support 3,500 people living with dementia in Aberdeen and also their families and friends.

The event is open to walkers of all ages and abilities, and is also wheelchair, buggy and dog-friendly.

It will also feature a zumba warm-up session with Jillian Burns and musical entertainment from city choir the Sweet Adelines.

Andrea Watt, the charity’s community fundraiser, said: “We are all very excited about our Aberdeen Memory Walk event this year and we need as many local people as possible to come along and challenge dementia, celebrate loved ones, and enjoy a fantastic day out in the beautiful Scottish outdoors.

“Together we can make a huge difference to the lives of people living with dementia and their families across the region.”

Registration is £10 for adult walkers, £5 for those aged 12-16 and under 12s can walk for free.
