A racing-themed walk brought the community together to bring down the chequered flag on dementia.

The Grand Prix Walk took place on Wednesday (June 12) in Levengrove Park with 220 attendees.

The event was an opportunity to celebrate the 85th birthday of Formula One legend Sir Jackie Stewart on June 11.

It also wanted to raise awareness of his charity foundation: Race Against Dementia, which was set up following his wife Lady Helen's diagnosis with the disease.

The charity is working to find a cure or effective treatment for the condition.

One of Sir Jackie's motor racing trophies was brought to the event by West Dunbartonshire Council (WDC) Arts and Heritage team.

Organised by the Greenspace Team at WDC, the event is already speeding up to make a return again next year.
