Chelmsford Memory Walk Volunteer Sunday 6th October

This opportunity takes place between 06 Oct 2019 and 07 Oct 2019. Closing date for applications is 03 Oct.

Dementia is the UK's biggest killer. 225,000 people will develop dementia this year, that’s one person every three minutes. Not one of our walks could happen without our amazing volunteers. We raised over £8 million from last year's Memory Walks, and we hope to raise even more this year! By volunteering you will make a massive difference in the funding of vital dementia research, campaigns, and support services
