In memory of Alan Kelly
We stand for everyone affected by dementia to find a cure


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

In 2012, I produced my first short film called HOLDING ON in memory of my Dad - Alan Kelly. Over the last ten years many of my friends parents have been affected by this disease. 

In Nov 2016 my beloved uncle Patrick passed away having suffered with the disease.

More recently my mother in law has beenot diagnosed bring me back in to contact with those who care for people with the disease as well as long term sufferers. 

Unfortunately most people I speak with have a family member with some form of mental health disease. I am hoping to help towards understanding and prevention.

Over 850,000 people live with Dementia in the UK and that number is rapidly rising.

£20 pays for 1 hour of pioneering dementia research.

£500 will cover the cost of a sensitive brain scan for a patient involved in a research study, tracking the effectiveness of new drug treatments, improving diagnosis and better understanding how diseases like Alzheimer’s wreak their havoc in the brain.

Thank you for reading my page.
