In September and early October, we were privilleged to be involved in the Alzhemier’s Society Memory Walks in Wales. We attended events in Cardiff, Llanelli and on the Glanusk Estate in Crickhowell alongside the always fabulous Brodies Coffee Co. and our new friend The Mobile Oasis.
It was inspiring to see literally thousands of people giving up their time on a Sunday morning to walk anywhere from 3km – 8km raising money for the society. Each walker had a message attached to their t-shirts to show who they were walking to remember so it was clear just how many people are affected by dementia.
The Cardiff walk was the largest event with several thousand walkers assembling at the start line in Cardiff Bay. When the walk started at 11am, it was as if someone had pulled a plug out of the basin as the sea of people, all in white t-shirts, disappeared across the start line and around the corner.
Big congratulations to everyone that completed the walk… Here’s to 2017!
