Richmondshire District Council Leader, Yvonne Peacock said: “We are asking for help by people signing up to take part in the walk and gathering their own sponsorship funding.

“We are hoping to not only raise valuable funds for the Alzheimer’s Society but also to raise awareness around dementia within our local communities.
