Join Alzheimer Scotland on Wednesday morning at 10am for a Memory Walk from the Clayton Hotel on Clyde Street to Glasgow Green along the Clyde Walkway. This gentle, 2 mile (3.2 km) stroll alongside the River Clyde is a great opportunity to take time out in your busy day to remember someone you love. The Clyde Walkway is wide, flat and very easy to walk along (there are two road crossings in the route). Please wear sensible shoes for walking in a city environment and dress for the weather. The walk will begin and end outside the Clayton Hotel and should last around 45 minutes. Participation is free, but donations to Alzheimer Scotland are very welcome. For more information, please contact Kirsty Yanik on [email protected].
The origins of Glasgow Green date back several centuries, to when King James II granted the parkland to Bishop William Turnbull and the people of Glasgow in 1450. In its time, Glasgow Green has been used for grazing livestock, washing linen and drying fishing nets. More recently, it has hosted political protests and music festivals in the city. It is also home to some excellent examples of Scottish architecture, including the People’s Palace (a museum dedicated to the people of Glasgow) and the Templeton Factory, which was inspired by the Doge’s Palace in Venice.
Every penny raised from Scotland’s Memory Walk will help Alzheimer Scotland fund their vital network of Dementia Advisors, Dementia Centres and 24-hour Freephone Dementia Helpline (0808 808 3000) – critical supports for people living with dementia, their family members, friends and carers. We need your help to make sure that nobody has to face dementia alone. Sign up today at https://memorywalk.alzscot.org/
