We are united to create a world without dementia.

Charity Registration No. 296645


It is in honour and memory of our dearly loved mums that I am fundraising!

As many of you know, my beautiful mum, Rosemary sadly passed away in December last year after suffering Alzheimer’s for several years. My dear mum-in-law Jane still lives with this crippling disease. Alzheimer’s not only affects the individual but the many loved family and friends who help to take care of them. Please help raise funds to smooth the whole process for the carers, to raise money to fund research to eventually find a cure and help support those currently affected.

Any donation, however small will be so appreciated and all goes direct to the charity. Please help me reach my target.

Many of you that know me well, know what a personal struggle this has been.  Slimming world and a determination to get fit motivated me......I planned my 50th year to undertake ‘something’ that would make a difference! I didn’t know at the time what that would be .......

I will be running 3 ‘Great’ races totaling 50miles. (49.3m..... I will make up the difference, I promise!).

The Greater Manchester Marathon (April 7th) 26.2m

The Great North Run (September 8th) 13.1m

The Great South Run (October 20th) 10m

Alzheimer’s Society is transforming the landscape of dementia forever.Until the day we find a cure, we will create a society where those affected by dementia are supported and accepted, able to live in their community without fear or prejudice.
