A WALK organised by a tireless fundraiser saw more than £3,000 collected to help people with Alzheimer's Disease.

Beryl Larder encouraged 91 people to join her on Northallerton's third annual Memory Walk recently.

On a damp and miserable day, participants set off from the town's Golden Lion Hotel to embark upon the walk, organised in a bid to raise money for the Alzheimer's Society.

Ms Larder said she was thrilled to see that the event had raised £3,365 for the charity.

She said: "I really enjoyed the walk, which has increased in size each year.

"It gives us all the opportunity to show support for those people who live with memory loss and those who love and care for them.

"It was especially nice that we had families walking together, including seven small children and five dogs, which made it such a success.

"I'm really proud that my efforts will help the Alzheimer's Society be there for more people affected by dementia and create a lasting change."

Leah Bull, Community Fundraiser for Alzheimer’s Society in Hambleton and Richmondshire said: “We are extremely grateful to Beryl for all of the time and energy she put into this Memory Walk for Alzheimer's Society. We’re facing an incredible challenge: one person every three minutes develops dementia and there is no cure. We’re here to change that."
