Two Fenland sisters walked for ‘a world without dementia’ in memory of their granddad.
Jade and Saffron Rudd took part in The Alzheimer’s Society Memory Walk at Ferry Meadows Country Park on September 17 in honour of their granddad Michael Cawston, who died in December 2014.
They couldn’t wait to get started and there was no question about whether they would do the 2k or 9k walk.
“The Rudds do things properly,” joked Jade, who lives in Wisbech.
Saffron, who lives in Downham Market said that they’ve raised more than £200 for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Jade said: “Granddad was ill for a very long time; it was as if he wasn’t here, but he was here.
“He was always singing. He was a wonderful man.”

Michael ‘Fred’ Cawston lived in Clenchwarton with his wife Andrea, who died ten years ago.
The pair, who walked the longer distance of nine kilometres, hoped their granddad would find it heart-warming that they took part.
There are more than 8,000 people in Cambridgeshire living with dementia and around 1,000 people took part in the Peterborough Memory Walk.
