Emma and Anna tell us why they took on a trek for Dementia UK:
The walk was both emotionally and physically challenging. But I can’t explain how lovely the support was around. Locals left out chairs with rest stops, with glasses of water and oranges; not to mention the moral support from the other people taking part.
