Mandy’s journey inspires charity walk

Nuriootpa’s Mandy Talbot has witnessed first hand what Alzheimer’s can do to loved ones and their family.

With her mother, Min Steer suffering from Alzheimer’s for a number of years, Mandy recently decided to organise a charity walk to raise funds and awareness of the disease.

This event will be held on April 17 where participants can register at Coulthard House, Nuriootpa from 9 a.m., walk along Murray Street as a group to Tolley’s Reserve where a sausage sizzle will be held.

A registration fee will go towards Alzheimer’s Australia SA.

“With mum, it was gradual,” said Mandy.

“At first it was, oh that’s a bit odd and then it slowly creeps up on people. There’s a difference to forgetting and then forgetting what you did yesterday or a major event.”
