Alzheimer's Society walk helps bring bereaved together
More than 100 walkers took to Cassiobury Park to remember loved ones and raise money for the care of people suffering from dementia.
The town’s elected mayor Dorothy Thornhill, were among the scores of walkers who took part in this year’s Memory Walk in Watford yesterday.
The event saw people do a two and a half mile walk starting at Cha Cha Cha and taking in the park and its woodland.
It was part of a national fundraising drive for the Alzheimer’s Society, which provides care and support for people with dementia and their families.
However for other people, taking part in the event was a way to remember loved ones they have lost to the condition and those currently suffering from it.
Among those who took part was Sadie Hubbard, a 47-year-old Alzheimer’s Society Volunteer from Chorleywood, who started helping out at the charity after losing her father to dementia.
She said: "It was a great day. This is the fourth time we have done it and each year it just gets a bit bigger and a bit better with more walkers.
"The eldest walker we had was in her 80s and did it in memory of her late husband. We had a lot of people walking in memory of loved ones."
