On Saturday 21 September, Kevan officially opened the Alzheimer’s Society Memory Walk at the Riverside in Chester-le-Street.

Kevan said, “I am delighted to officially open the Alzheimer’s Society Memory Walk in Chester-le-Street. I know that the society does a huge amount of invaluable work in supporting people with dementia and their families, and the memory walk is a vital part of that.

“I know from my own family experience the impact that dementia can have and it is really important that we keep working towards finding a cure, and also better ways of dealing with the illness. Hopefully the memory walk will raise awareness and much needed funds to carry on this work.”
