A hundred people have taken part in Carlisle's 'memory walk' in aid of the Alzheimer's Society.

Dementia patients and their relatives walked either a one mile course or a three mile course from Bitz Park.

It is one of a number of Memory Walks across the UK that are being held.

Walking, exercising and being physically healthy are considered to be important for those who might have dementia.

It's also hoped the walk has raised thousands of pounds for the Alzheimers Society in Cumbria.
