A walk lit up by glow-sticks paraded around the Olympic park to raise funds for dementia sufferers.

The 5km London Night Memory Walk started at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, tracing a path around the velodrome and towards the main stadium on Saturday (October 6).

Walkers, including staff from Chingford dementia home Gracewell on Hatch Lane, brought along their glow sticks to light up the parade.

This year’s Memory Walk is hoping to raise £9m nationally and bring together more than 110,000 participants.

Nelly Sooben, general manager at Gracewell, said: We are so proud of our team members who took part in the London Night Memory Walk.

“Joining together as a team meant that our home was able to contribute to the brilliant work of the Alzheimer’s Society to support those affected by memory loss and their families, and continue much-needed research.”
