“Leading the fight against dementia”
The Alzheimer’s Society are the UK’s leading dementia support and research charity, providing support for anyone affected by any form of dementia in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
They provide information and practical and emotional support to help people live well with dementia, and invest in world-class research with the ultimate goal of defeating it. They also campaign to improve public understanding of dementia and the devastating impact it can have, and make sure it’s taken seriously and acted on by our governments.
Donations so far: £1000
We raised £1000 for The Alzheimer’s Society through our event with promoters Gold Teeth at The Night Kitchen in October 2014, for which we brought along man of the moment Daniel Avery and underground UK veteran Artwork for a truly memorable party. It was made all the more memorable for the money we were able to donate to the charity’s Sheffield branch, which will go towards maintaining the invaluable work that they do to support those affected by Alzheimer’s.
Ways in which the money raised can help:
- £5 could pay for one person to attend a half hour session at a monthly Dementia Café, providing information and support for people with dementia and their carers.
- £20 could pay for 100 copies of ‘Understanding and Respecting the Person with Dementia’ – one of the Society’s most requested factsheets.
- £50 could fund a PhD researcher for one day to continue vital research into understanding the causes of dementia, how it can be treated and, ultimately, to find a cure.
- £120 could pay to run Talking Point for one day – the Society’s 24/7 online community for all people affected by dementia.
