Angela’s story

Angela’s story inspired this walk and she is part of the team organising this walk.  This is her story:

“When Angela’s mum, Eileen, sadly passed away last year she was considering taking part in a Memory Walk. Little did she realise that she would be helping organise a Memory Walk herself.
The last 4 years of Eileen’s life were heart breaking to watch, as dementia took its toll on her mind and body.
Angela knows there are many people who have witnessed a similar experience and there will be many more in the future.
Please join Angela and her family, Strolls with Poles and the Ponteland Meanders walk all over dementia by sponsoring us on our Memory Walk on 26th October 2019 and make a difference raising vital funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Every penny raised will go towards the fight against dementia.”
