Mary Miller et al

Congratulations to Mary Miller, Paul Wright and Alan & Helen Lewis (pictured), who completed a marathon walk near Salisbury on Saturday 3rd September, to raise money for dementia research.

Alan and Helen Lewis support the charity because they lost Alan's mum to vascular dementia in May 2015. They and Richard Cartwright did the marathon walk last year and were joined this year by Paul Wright and Mary Miller who both recently lost a parent to this disease.

The Alzheimer's Society believes passionately that life doesn't end when dementia begins. Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease or a series of strokes.

Dementia is progressive, which means the symptoms will gradually get worse. There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK and the number is set to rise to 1 million by 2021. The word dementia describes a set of symptoms that may include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language.

The monies raised will be used to fund more research into this disease. You can still add your support to the group by sponsoring them through their just giving pages or in person by contacting them directly.
