Brighton Lindyhoppers Demonstrate How To Dance The Brighton And Hove Memory Walk

People affected by dementia, their carers and Alzheimer's Society volunteers will be encouraging people to sign up for the Brighton and Hove Memory Walk by performing a 1940s dance routine on Hove Lawns. 



Led by the Brighton Lindyhoppers, the gang of  beginners will perform a dance routine demonstrating fun, alternative ways in which people can make their way around the Memory Walk when it takes place in the same location on 4th October 2014.  

Amanda Walderman from the Brighton Lindyhoppers dance group, is lending her support as a close family friend was diagnosed with dementia.

Charlotte Smith, who is taking part in the Brighton Memory Walk as her grandma has dementia. 

Charlotte's grandma and mum are also due to attend. Other case studies taking part in the walk will also be attending and joining in.


Alzheimer's Society hopes the performance, which will also be videoed and shared on social media, will encourage people to sign up for the walk and even consider dancing around the route to raise even more sponsorship money for people affected by dementia and their carers.    

Memory Walk is Alzheimer's Society"s flagship fundraising event which sees walks take place throughout the autumn. 

The Brighton and Hove Memory Walk starts from Hove Lawns on Saturday 4th October. 

Participants can chose from a 2km or a 8km route and whole families are encouraged to attend. 

Money raised will help fund vital services for people affected by dementia and their carers and research to find a cure once and for all.
