Fundraising & paying in your sponsorship



Who are the walks suitable for?

Organise your Own Memory Walk



  • Where do I send my sponsorship and donations?
  • Thank you for collecting sponsorship or looking to send a donation. Without your fundraising, we couldn't help epopel living with dementia through support services and ongoing research. To donate, please don't send cash - you can pay this into your account then donate in the following ways:
    • Send a cheque, made payable to Alzheimer's Society, sponsorship forms and donation return form in your freepost envelope which you received in your pack after registering. Let us know if you haven't got a freepost envelope. 
    • Make a card payment over the phone by calling us on 0300 330 5452
    • Add the donation to your JustGiving page. The money will come straight to us, simple!

  • Where can I find photos from the Memory Walk I took part in?
  • You can find photos from Memory Walk on Flickr. Not all walks had photographers so there may not be photos from every walk. You can also find photos which walkers have added on social media - search #MemoryWalk on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

  • Can I bring my family and friends along with me? Can people with dementia and under 16s take part too?
  • Of course - the more the merrier! Under 16s will need to take part with an adult. We aim to be as inclusive as possible and most of our Memory Walks are suitable for people of all ages and abilities, including those living with dementia. When we announce our walks, each walk page will state if it is suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs too.

  • There isn’t a walk close to me. Can I organise my own Memory Walk?
  • Definitely! Memory Walk season is from August to October so if you want to organise a walk for then, register on the Organise Your Own page or by calling our Memory Walk hotline on 0300 330 5452. Once you've registered, we’ll send you a fundraising pack with more information about how to organise a walk, including useful information on insurance, risk assessment and general tips.
  • If you would like to organise a sponsored walk outside of Memory Walk season, please request a fundraising pack and the Challenge Events team will be in touch soon.

  • Help! I’m organising my own walk and I don’t know where to begin!
  • It is brilliant that you are organising your own Memory Walk. If you have registered, you should have received your welcome guide by email, and your fundraising pack by post a couple of weeks later. You can find even more information in our online organiser’s guide. From raising sponsorship to insurance and first aid, there are lots of useful tips. Don’t panic! You can always contact the Memory Walk team if you have any questions.

  • I'm organising my own walk and my walk details have changed, what do I do?
  • Please let the Memory Walk team know if your walk date has changed or you are expecting a higher or lower number of participants than initially expected when you completed the registration form. We want to be able to send you enough materials for your walkers at a time that is convenient to you. You can reach us on 0300 330 5452 or by emailing MemoryWalk@alzheimers.org.uk.

  • The Memory Walk I have organised has been cancelled, what do I do?
  • We're sorry to hear your walk has been cancelled. Email the Memory Walk team at memorywalk@alzheimers.org.uk or call 0300 330 5452 and we can cancel your registration. This will ensure you do not receive any further communications from us regarding your walk.

  • I’m interested in volunteering – what’s involved?
  • We need 2000 volunteers to ensure our event days run to plan. There are a variety of different roles – for more information visit our volunteering page. Once registration opens, you will be able to see the walks near you and register to volunteer.
