Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page! Any donations would be greatly appreciated! As some of you know, I also work with individuals who suffer from dementia in my art workshops and so, this is why I have chosen this charity to raise funds for this year. On 4th June 2016, I will be completing a 75km (47 mile ish) trek challenge in the Brecon Beacons, which runs through the centre of South Wales and is the training ground for the SAS! As you can imagine, The Beacons routes will provide trekkers with an extreme physical workout and a psychologically taxing challenge, crossing the highest peaks in South Wales including Pen y Fan (886m), Corn Du (873m), Cribyn (795m) and Fan y Big (719m); so it's not for the faint-hearted! This is my first time doing anything like this so I hope you can support me on my fundraising mission here!
Alzheimers Society is the UK's leading support and research charity, helping those with any form of dementia. Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by diseases, such as Alzheimer's Disease or a series of strokes. Dementia describes a set of symptoms, which may include memory loss and/or difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. There is no cure and it is a progressive disease, which means that the symptoms will gradually get worse over time. It has a devastating effect - not just on the diagnosed individual but on those caring for them too.
