A FAMILY will walk a mountain marathon to help fund specialist nurses who support people living with dementia.

Sally Hobson, 13, roped her family into walking the Yorkshire three peaks after her grandparents were the first people in Wakefield to be helped by an Admiral Nurse.

Michael Brown, 80, has had dementia for six years, leaving his wife Margaret in need of support. Admiral Nurses specialise in looking after people with dementia and their families and carers, providing practical and emotional support.

The Hobson family, of Sandal, will walk on Saturday. To sponsor them log on www.justgiving.com/fundraising/sallyhobson03.
