We provide help and hope to everyone living with dementia.


Thank you so much for visiting our Just Giving page. Here's a message from Sal...

"Most of us at some point in our lives will be touched by dementia, whether that's a mum, dad, husband, wife, partner, friend, aunt or uncle. With that, comes a range of gut-wrenching emotions that not only affect the person, who will at times feel anxious, frightened, angry and confused, but also the family & friends who will inevitably see on a daily basis that person slowly slipping away from them. 

With an equal measure of emotions, we as a family have been so very very lucky to have the support of some amazing people to care for our mum at home, but some people don't have the luxury that we have. What is super important to us is to look forward with the hope of a cure, but we are very conscious of the now; people that need support right this minute, whether that be help with day or night care, a respite of a couple hours, support emotionally and physically. 

So please, give what you can. We really appreciate that times are tough, but thank you to everyone who can give just a little or a lot, and I'll do my best to donkey to the finish!"

- Berlin (September 2023) COMPLETED

- Tokyo (March 2024) COMPLETED

- Boston (April 2024) COMPLETED
