A 21-year-old from Weston-super-Mare is among the finalists in the Alzheimer's Society's Dementia Friendly Awards.

Emma-Louise Woods has been selected as one of three contenders in the young person’s contribution of the year category.

The award recognises an inspiring individual who has demonstrated a positive impact on the lives of those living with dementia.

Emma-Louise has been working hard over the past year fundraising for the society and also setting up a memory café at St Georges Surgery.

Emma-Louise said: “It is in my nature to help people. I find great satisfaction in supporting others and helping provide better solutions for current problems.

“It’s been really rewarding to see how much it helped the community.”

Emma-Louise will embark on her latest challenge to walk the Great Wall of China on a 10-day trek this month to raise funds for the charity.
