Actress Carey Mulligan is urging members of the public to put on their walking shoes and support Memory Walk. In its eleventh year, Memory Walk is Alzheimer’s Society’s biggest annual fundraiser. Events will take place around the UK throughout September.

Carey, whose grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s eight years ago, is asking families and individuals to step out for a few hours and raise money to help support local people with dementia and their carers. A variety of entertainment and refreshments will be available making it a day to remember for the whole family.

There are 750,000 people with dementia in the UK. The money raised from Memory Walk will help to fund vital local services for people with dementia and their carers. Such services include day support and befriending which can radically improve people’s lives.

Memory Walk 2012 is being held by Alzheimer’s Society in partnership with Bupa. Walks will take place at various venues across England, Wales and Northern Ireland and are open to people of all ages, children to grandparents.

Kathryn Betts, from Alzheimer’s Society said: ‘Memory Walk is a fantastic way to spend a day. Families, friends, colleagues and individuals can walk together to raise money to help local people with dementia. Additionally an array of entertainment and refreshments will be available making it a day to remember for everyone who takes part.

‘Thanks to the support of Bupa, Memory Walk is able to support more people living with dementia through the vital funds that are raised.’
