Watford Memory Walk

What’s involved?

We need over 2500 volunteers this year to help make Memory Walk a success. Without volunteers, we cannot hold the events and reach our target.

Join us at Watford Memory Walk for our walk taking place within Cassiobury Park on Saturday 14th September. With two routes to choose from, we need enthusiastic volunteers to make it a day to remember for our walkers. Volunteers are needed for just a few hours. Volunteers of all ages are welcome, but if you are under 16 you must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and if you're aged 16-18 you will need to complete a parental consent form.

Most of our volunteers will be needed between 08:30 and 13:30, depending on the role. Exact timings will be confirmed nearer the date.

There are lots of ways you can help make Memory Walk a great day for everyone involved; including marshalling, route marking, cheering walkers across the finish line, interacting with walkers, selling merchandise, helping to keep the site clean and tidy and helping with event setup and breakdown.

About you:

Memory Walk welcomes everyone and we’ll find a role to suit your needs! We love volunteers who are happy to take on a variety of different roles throughout the day, are good communicators and comfortable talking to our walkers. Volunteering at Memory Walk is also great for pairs and groups.

The impact you’ll make:

Memory Walk is Alzheimer’s Society’s flagship fundraising event, where thousands of walkers unite against dementia at sponsored walks across England, Wales & Northern Ireland. The money raised at Memory Walk helps to fund our universal and local services, as well as our research and campaigning work.
