The walk, staged to help end the devastation caused by dementia, has already raised more than £68,000, with more funds expected in the coming weeks.

Dementia is the UK’s biggest killer, with one in three people born in the UK today going on to develop the condition in their lifetime.

Natalie Skipper, the Alzheimer’s Society community fundraiser, said: “We are in awe of our incredible fundraisers, who turned out in their hundreds to support the over 9,300 people living with dementia across Cambridgeshire. It was extremely moving to see so many people come together to honour or remember their loved ones.

“Every pound raised from the Cambridge Memory Walk will make a huge difference.

“Supporters walked to fund faster diagnosis, ongoing support and vital research, helping people with dementia live more fulfilled lives now and in the future.

“I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has helped make this year’s Cambridge Memory Walk such a brilliant success.”
