Next Sunday 24th September a team from North Oxford are taking part in one of the Memory Walks. This will take place in Oxford University parks from 11am and is organised by the Alzheimer’s Society, to develop awareness and raise money for research into dementia.

Every three minutes someone is diagnosed with dementia and the disease affects 1 in 14 people over 65, this ratio increases dramatically with age. It is also the leading cause of death in women in the UK. Despite the funding for research, investment in dementia is seven times lower than it is for cancer. There is no cure and no effective treatment for dementia. It is a dreadful disease that is likely to touch all of us in some way, some day.

Please support the team by making a donation or sign up to join the walk by visiting the Alzheimer’s Society website (team ID 31995).
Pictured here are Gill Davidson, Lesley Robinson, Jill Northover, Anne Barras, Sue Stewart and Hils Lane.
