TV presenter joins 250-strong 'memory' walk
TELEVISION personality Chris Serle joined 250 walkers yesterday as they ventured out on an emotional 'memory walk' to raise money for a dementia support charity.
The former presenter of That's Life had his own reasons for doing the annual walk at Highnam Court organised by the Alzheimer's Society.
Mr Serle, who was joined by his wife Ali and 10-month old son Oliver, said: "I had a very dear uncle who suffered from dementia.

"He was there in body, but not in mind and it was very distressing."
Fellow walker Debs Davis, a personal support assistant at St Oswald's retirement village, did 10 miles for the charity.
She said: "I work with a lot of people with dementia. You've got to look at the person and not the illness.
"This walk is something positive we can do."
