Davina McCall, Sir Geoff Hurst, Jo Joyner, Linda Robson, Vicky McClure and Kevin Whately are uniting with Alzheimer’s Society by taking part in Memory Walk, the charity’s flagship fundraising event this autumn.
They are among a host of celebrities joining many of the 34 Memory Walks taking place across England, Wales and Northern Ireland in September and October.
Dementia is the 21st century’s biggest killer and devastates lives. Every pound raised by Memory Walk will help Alzheimer’s Society provide information and support, improve care, fund research and create lasting change for people affected by dementia.
This year, Memory Walk is set to raise £9million and bring together more than 110,000 walkers across generations – as well as the first ever night walks taking place in London, Liverpool and Cardiff as a grand finale on Saturday 14 October.
