With Direct Air’s 25th anniversary on the horizon in 2018, we thought it was about time we selected a company charity.
A cause which is very close to the company is the growing battle against dementia, therefore for 2018 we will be raising money in support of Alzheimer’s Society.
We will set ourselves the goal to complete at least 12 charitable events next year – that’s 1 month per month!
About Alzheimer’s Society
Alzheimer’s Society is the only UK charity investing in research into dementia care, cause, cure and prevention. They’ve committed to spending £150 million on cutting-edge research over the
next decade. Every project they fund directly addresses the needs and concerns of people affected by dementia.
Alzheimer’s Society’s National Dementia Helpline offers
information, advice and emotional support to people affected by dementia. Their advisers provide support by phone, email, social media, post, and though our online forum, Talking Point. They also have over 200 free publications, available online and in print, with clear and straightforward, NHS England-accredited information.
Our 3,000 services across England, Wales and Northern Ireland offer information, care and support to people with dementia, their families, friends and carers. These include Dementia Cafés, Singing for
the Brain® sessions, and Dementia Advisers, Dementia Support Workers and Side by Side volunteers who support people to keep doing the things they enjoy.
