There are 45,000 people living with dementia in Wales. Dementia devastates lives. Every pound raised through Cardiff Memory Walk (Sun, September 10) will help Alzheimer’s Society Cymru provide vital information and support, improve care, fund research and create lasting change for people affected by the condition.

Only Men Aloud are all very proud to continue our support for Alzheimer’s Society Cymru, as many members of have personal experience of dementia in their families. We all became Dementia Friends earlier this year and have been involved in the charity’s fundraising events.

Last year more than 4,000 people took part in Cardiff Memory Walk. The event is a great opportunity for us all to join together, celebrate someone special, share experiences and unite against dementia.

This year there is a Cardiff Day and for the first time a Cardiff Night Walk as dementia happens around the clock. We are encouraging people to take up the challenge this year of ‘doing the double’.
