Weʼre raising £10,000 to DEMENTIA CHARITIES

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.


As some of you are aware, our Grandad has been in Stratheden Hospital since November 2017.  Sadly we have seen him deteriorate, especially over the last couple of months. He was a very hard working man and always kept himself busy.  Of course he also enjoyed some sport, golf and in particular curling.  We visit him weekly, and although he no longer knows who we are, on occasions we can still get a smile from him.

I plan to run the London Marathon 2019 with my sister Amy, and cousins Karen and Derek.  We have all entered London but won’t find out till October if we have been successful. In the meantime we will enter smaller organised runs throughout the year. There is a possibility 2 of our Aunties will join us too.

We would like to try raise £10,000.  Please can you share with friends and family.  £1 Will help in every way possible.

The charity we are donating to is Alzheimer’s Research UK.

For one year only Alzheimer’s Research UK are joining forces with Alzheimer’s Society as Charity of the Year for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon – the Dementia Revolution.
Dementia is the biggest health threat facing society and there are currently no effective treatments to slow, prevent or cure it.  But dementia is not a lost cause, it is caused by diseases like Alzheimer’s and research can overcome them.
Together we’re making a stand against dementia, overthrowing old attitudes and powering the most ambitious dementia research endeavour the UK has ever seen – the Dementia Research Institute. 700 researchers in 6 centres across 3 nations, working tirelessly to find better treatments and a cure, revolutionising dementia research.

Thank you very much for your support, it genuinely means a lot to all of us xx
