Poem penned to publicise fundraising Memory Walk

Have your say

The Bard of Barnsley, Ian McMillan, is to launch a poem highlighting the plight of people with Alzheimer’s.

The poet will launch the verse – Walking for Memory – tomorrow at Wentworth Castle Gardens’ Rotunda Temple.

The poem has been created to help publicise the Alzheimer’s Society Memory Walk at the gardens on Sunday, September 29.

Ian said: “I was pleased to write a poem for Memory Walk, because language, rhythm and memorable speech help to remind us who we are.”
