Patti Clare launches Memory Walk for Alzheimer's Society

Coronation Street actress Patti Clare, who plays Mary Taylor, today launches Manchester Memory Walk - one of the biggest in the country.

Seven hundred people took part in last year's Alzheimer's Society event at Heaton Park, raising £50,000.

Patti, who plays Mary Taylor, said: "Dementia is a devastating illness that has an impact on so many people in the Greater Manchester area.

"The walk in the park is a great day out but also raises vital funds for people with dementia, their carers and local services.

"By getting involved and going the distance - there's a choice of doing 2km or 10km - everyone can be part of an amazing event at Heaton Park and make a difference."

Patti urged people to sign up at memorywalk.org.uk for the walk being held on Saturday 28 September.
