PEOPLE in Gosport came together to raise cash for a mental health charity.

Braving the autumn weather, people of all ages descended on the seafront at Stokes Bay, in Gosport, for the Alzheimer’s Society annual Memory Walk.

The walk was held in partnership with Bupa Care Services and helps those people living with dementia.

People taking part chose either a 2km or 4km walk.

Participants took around an hour to do the walk, after meeting at The Bayside Cabin, in Stokes Bay, at 11am.

It comes as people across the country took part in Memory Walks.

Last year’s Memory Walk raised £1.4m nationally.
