Mary Miller

Mary Miller is raising funds for Alzheimer's Society which is a charity set up to raise money for dementia research and to help people affected by dementia. They provide expert information and support to anyone affected by dementia but need funds.

One way they raise money is through organised events and Mary is supporting this very worthy charity by undertaking a marathon walk called 'Trek26Canterbury' on 15th September.

The walk is a full 26 miles and will begin at Herne Common in Canterbury. The walk will then heads to the North East to the Thames. After a stretch along the coast, it will turn back South through hills and valleys, passing Canterbury and its impressive cathedral before reaching the finish line!

The participants are expected to be walking at 3.5 miles per hour which is difficult in this heat so she is hoping for cooler weather on the day!

Preparations are underway which is why you might see Mary walking around the village a lot! you can support this charity by sponsoring her online through her just giving page:

or in person if you see her out and about.
