West Berkshire Alzheimer's Society memory walk -Saturday 28th September at 1pm

This year's memory walk will take place on Saturday 28th September at 3pm at the Thatcham Nature Discovery Centre.





There's a choice of two beautiful walks around the scenic lakes - 1 mile or 3 miles.

Many more details here: www.memorywalk.org.uk/site/custom_scripts/memorywalk.php?memorywalkID=300

The local branch is also looking for more volunteer befrienders - so if you're happy to give up an hour here and there to chat to an elderly person, then please let the local branch know.

I have befriended two people with dementia in the West Berkshire area and I can't tell you how beneficial it is for them to chat and not to feel lonely. It's also incredibly uplifting to talk to someone with amazing experiences and to find out more about how life used to be.
