Trowbridge-based charity Alzheimer’s Support is urging local residents to dig out their trainers and take part in a step challenge taking place next month. Fundraisers are being asked to walk, run or jog their way through May to help people with dementia.

There’s no set target – the charity is encouraging people to set their own personal challenge to complete as many steps as possible and raise funds.

Alzheimer’s Support community fundraiser Rachel Fear says “Whatever your goal for the month, big or small, we’ll help you every step of the way. By raising even a small amount of funds ,you will be supporting people affected by dementia and their carers with every step you take.”

The challenge is free to enter: please call 07793 250454, or sign up online at
