Every year RD:IR staff choose a different charity to support. Alzheimer’s Society has been selected for 2018.
Money is raised via a number of fundraising initiatives over the course of the year. As per tradition, RD:IR is taking part in the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge and would like to raise awareness and donations for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Alzheimer’s Society is a registered research charity that works to improve the quality of life for people suffering with dementia and the carers of those inflicted. Despite its name, Alzheimer’s Society does not solely focus on Alzheimer’s disease, aiming to help those affected by all forms of dementia.
Being the only UK charity that invests in research into dementia care, cause, cure and prevention, of every £1 donated to Alzheimer’s Society, 89p is spent directly on improving the lives of those affected by dementia.
