A north Kent charity is asking runners in next year’s London Marathon to fundraise for them.

Alzheimer’s and Demenia Support Services, based in Dene Holm Road, Northfleet, has operated in the area since 1991 and is urging people to run for them if they have a place but have not chosen a charity yet.

The charity’s Sarah Dell said: “Our primary aim is to help people to remain living in their own home for as long as possible and to support their carers throughout their caring role and beyond, even after that role has ended.

“If you have your own place and would like to use your efforts for a brilliant cause we would love to hear from you. Please call us on 01474 533990.”

The marathon takes place on Sunday, April 13.
