Memory Walk for The Alzheimer’s Society
September 21, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 2:30 pm
Memory Walk Saturday 21/9/19
This walk is to raise funds for a fantastic cause, The Alzheimer’s Society. The walk will be one of hundreds of walks across the UK scheduled as part of their “Walking Season” raising funds to help them find a cure for this condition that is predicted to affect 75 million people by 2030.
The walk is about six miles on the coast path starting at The Theatre Babbacombe and ending at Torquay harbour. This section of the coast path has little in the way of refreshment stops so you will need drinks and lunch. As with all our walks we will take the pace of the slower walkers. The start time for the walk will be 11:00am outside the Theatre, if you are using Public Transport the 122 bus leaves Paignton Bus station at 10:10 and arrives in Babbacombe at 10:44.
