Ten years ago, in 2012, Claire's dad, Ken, sadly passed away after a long battle with Alzheimer's.

On Saturday 11th June, Claire and James are joining A Walk to Remember - a 8.5 mile walk up and around Battlesbury Hill in Trowbridge.

We would be grateful for any amount you can donate. It all adds up; for example, £25 could fund a Support Worker for an hour - and what a life-changing difference those visits make.

According to Alzheimer’s Research UK there are around 820,000 people living with dementia in the UK. The majority are older people, and incidence increases with age, with one in 20 over the age of 75, and one in five over the age of 85, affected. However it is possible for younger people to have dementia, and dementias that are diagnosed before the age of 65 are known as 'early-onset'.

In Wiltshire, there are estimated to be just over 7,000 people living with dementia.
