Event details


There are usually 4 routes; ½ mile, 1 mile, 3 mile and 5 miles. The ½ mile distance was added to encourage families living with dementia to join the walk with their loved ones.

There will be seats along the route to take a well-earned rest and a rest station at the ¼ mile turn around point.

This year – all donations were equally divided between two local dementia organisations; Decaf – a memory café in Sudbury which is part of the Bridge Project that provides an invaluable community resource for families living with Dementia and Hadleigh Dementia Action Alliance – who organise and support activities in Hadleigh to enable those living with Dementia to live well.
