JAYNE Coles, whose mum Sandra has dementia, is urging people to register for the Bristol Memory Walk to help the Alzheimer’s Society raise money for research and services.

 Three generations of Jayne’s family took part in last year’s event and she is asking supporters to sign up this year by going to memorywalk.org.uk

Jayne said: “We had a fantastic time at Memory Walk last year. The atmosphere was incredible and it was great to see people from all walks of life coming together for one cause.

 “As we walked we heard lots of moving stories and it was lovely that people of all ages and abilities took part. Most importantly, it was an event my mum could be involved with and she really enjoyed herself.”

A total of 1,100 supporters have already registered to take part in the Bristol Memory Walk on Saturday September 23, which will begin at the Lloyds Amphitheatre on Canon’s Marsh.

 More than 4,600 people in Bristol are living with dementia and last year’s event – attended by 2,300 people – raised more than £164,000 to help people living with the condition.
