A Halesworth dementia charity hosted a celebratory walk to commemorate its fifth anniversary.

The Halesworth dementia Carers’ Fund held a ‘Walk to Remember’ at the Millennium Green last month.

The group provide respite care for people with dementia in order for their carers and families to enjoy a well needed break.

A spokesman for HdCF said: “The day started with a splash of rain to freshen up the Green before the walk started.

“Several dogs walked with their owners, some walkers in fancy dress and all received a certificate at the end of the walk.
