£205raised of £5,000 target by 10 supporters

Weʼre raising £5,000 to help develop a cure for alzheimers and support those effected by it

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


My grandad was unfortunately diagnosed with alzheimers a couple of years ago, and whilst you can try and tell yourself that nothing has changed, it becomes clear, the speed of deterioration. For someone who was the most knowledgeable man i knew, it's heartbreaking watching him try and remember even the most recent holidays.

For my Grandma life has obviously changed; things that would usually be apparent to my grandad become less so, like cleaning and other small house jobs. Hearing the same news stories several times a day can't be the retirement she had planned for them both.

In September i will be climbing the most challenging route to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, and along the way doing various fundraisers to reach my target goal. Unfortunately many people know, have known or will know someone with alzheimer's or dementia, and you know that it is the whole family that suffer.

No one wants to not be able to remember the greatest times of their life, especially in a time when you have the most time to reminisce. Thanks for reading my story and hopefully one day no one will have to go through the pain that many families go through daily.
