Almost one million people in the UK are living with dementia and, tragically, none of them will survive.

Alzheimer’s Research UK aims to better understand dementia, improve diagnosis, reduce people’s risk of dementia, and create treatments, through its research.

The walk at Sherwood Pines will take place on July 14, and people who take part can expect entertainment, live music, and a friendly, fun atmosphere.

The walk will take a signposted, shaded route through the trees, on gravel paths suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs, with rest stops and accessible toilets at the event village.

Dogs are welcome on leads.

Upon arrival, walkers will receive a t-shirt and lanyard, and at the finish line will receive a medal.
