Sponsored by Lincoln City Council and Glenholme Healthcare, the 1.6km Memory Walk is a family-friendly event suitable for all ages and abilities. During the walk, participants will be able to take in the scenic views of Boultham Park, including its large lake and local wildlife, before finishing the afternoon with refreshments and music from the Lincolnshire Hospitals Band. Free car parking will also be available in and around the park.

There are an estimated 11,975 people living with dementia in Lincolnshire according to NHS Digital, with research by the Alzheimer's Society predicting that the number will swell to 17,940 by 2030. We're aiming to raise enough money for the organisation to support local people affected by dementia and to help fund vital services in the future.

Growth Director of Social Change UK, Alison Howard said: “Boultham Park is a special place to many local people, and we’re thrilled to be able to host this incredible event on behalf of the Alzheimer's Society next month. The day itself will include music, food vans and entertainment - it’s an afternoon to bring friends and family together and, of course, remember loved ones who have been affected by dementia.

“Alzheimer’s Society is transforming the landscape of dementia forever. Until the day we find a cure, we will create a society where those affected by dementia are supported and accepted, able to live in their community without fear or prejudice.

“We encourage everyone to get involved with this Memory Walk; we all know someone who has been affected by dementia and taking part in this event will not only encourage us to honour their memory but will also help us raise vital funds for this brilliant organisation.”

Lincoln’s Alzheimer's #MemoryWalk will take place at Boultham Park, South Lincoln, on Sunday 18th September from 2pm onwards. People can register their interest in attending the event here. Or if you’d like to donate to the event, you can do so here.
