Thunderbirds creator will be special guest at Memory Walk
Last year's Memory Walk at Dorney

A 'flagship' walk to help people with dementia will be attended by Thunderbirds creator Gerry Anderson next weekend.

The Windsor Memory Walk, run by the Alzheimer’s Society, takes place on Saturday, October 13, at the recent Olympic venue Eton Dorney Lake in Court Lane, Dorney.

Gerry, who created many of his legendary television puppet series at nearby Slough trading estate, will be a special guest. He was diagnosed with dementia 18 months ago and is taking part in the memory walk with his son Jamie.

There is a choice of a short 2km or long 10km walk. Refreshments and live music will be awaiting walkers at the boathouse.

Memory Walk 2012 is being held in partnership with Bupa Care Homes.

There will be a Singing for the Brain warm-up as well as performances from an acoustic guitarist and local rock 'n’ roll band Subway Monkeys

Last year's walk attracted 150 participants, raising £11,775.25. Already 300 people have signed up this year.

Registration is at 10am and the start time is 11am.

People can sign up at memorywalk.org.uk
