FUNDRAISERS are being urged to step out for a good cause by registering for this year's Reading Memory Walk.

The annual walk, organised by the Alzheimer's Society, attracts thousands of entrants every year in a bid to raise money for the charity.

More than 500 supporters have already registered to take part in the Reading Memory Walk, which will be taking place at Kings Meadows on September 30.

Linda Goddard, operations manager for Berkshire, said: “Dementia is now the UK’s biggest killer, with someone developing it every three minutes.

“We are calling on people across Reading to unite against dementia this autumn. Walk with us at Reading Memory Walk to help defeat dementia."

More than 1,400 people in Reading are living with dementia and last year’s event raised more than £165,000 to fund research and provide support
