Watford Borough Councillor Councillor Dawn Allen-Williamson has raised £1,320 for Alzheimer’s Society by taking part in the Watford Memory Walk.
The popular annual event took place on Saturday, September 11 at Cassiobury Park and the aim of the memory walk was to raise money to help create a dementia-free future and help those affected by dementia.
Dawn Allen-Williamson, Councillor for Callowland ward, said: “There are many people living with dementia in Watford and around the world, and as a cause close to my heart I chose to fundraise for the Alzheimer’s Society. I would like to see the Scientists find a cure for this terrible disease and am therefore encouraging people to support this worthy charity. Thank you to everyone who has supported me on this fundraising appeal.”
Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor, also attended the event and said: “It was wonderful to be part of the Memory Walk, back in Cassiobury Park. So many families have been affected by this illness. This event allowed people to remember loved ones and raise money for a fantastic charity. Across Watford lots of us are working together to make this a more dementia-friendly town.”
