TheSouth Ribble Partnerships Living Well Walk will take place on Saturday, October 5th, to help boost the well-being of people with dementia.

The South Ribble Partnership’s Living Well Walk will start at 10am on Saturday, October 5th, followed by a live music performance. Little Hoole singer Katy Bradley will take music fans on a trip down memory lane at 11am with singalong hits from the 1950s and '60s.

This free event is being held in association with the South Ribble Dementia Action Alliance to bring people together and raise awareness of the services and opportunities available to those living with the condition, or caring for somebody who is.

People are also invited to attend as Dementia Friends to learn how to become more understanding and supportive of those who have the condition.
