I am delighted theWelsh1000walk has chosen to raise vital funds for Alzheimer’s Society. This ambitious fundraiser is run entirely by volunteers and I would love to see hundreds of people sign-up and walk a stretch of the beautiful Welsh coastal path, to help support the 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK.”

Jeremy Hughes: CEO Alzheimer’s Society
