Story

Knight Classical has formally partnered with The Alzheimer’s Society: a UK-based charity providing vital support and funding life-changing research to give help and hope to people living with dementia and their loved ones. As a company, we are proud to support the fight against the devastation caused by dementia today, and aid in funding research towards finding a cure for dementia tomorrow.

Throughout 2024, we are raising money in memory of David W. Knight (1944-2023), beloved father to Philip, Richard, and Alexandra (our company Founder & CEO); stepfather to Leon; and grandfather to Ruby, Harry, and Amy.

OUR EVENTS

Keep an eye out: throughout 2024, our fundraising events will be added to this page.

WE NEED YOU!

We are calling upon our colleagues, our clients, and our families and friends to join us in our fundraising efforts! If you would like to run your own fundraising campaign (for instance – running a sponsored 10k, or holding a bake sale), please let us know so that we can add you as a team member (thereby linking your fundraising event to our main page here, to combine all donations in one shared ‘pot’).

Please get in touch to set this up: charity@knightclassical.com

WHY ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE?

One in three born in the UK today will develop dementia. Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease has been the leading cause of death in Britain for the last 10 years. It is the greatest health concern facing the UK. Your donation will fund vital support and life-changing research to give help and hope to someone living with dementia and their loved ones.

HOW YOUR DONATION HELPS

Donate £12: Pay for a companion call to someone who is feeling alone and isolated. A friendly chat can be a real lifeline.

Donate £30: Pay for two hours of expert guidance from a Dementia Adviser, providing much needed support to those with a dementia diagnosis and their loved ones.

Donate £50: Pay for a half day of research by a PhD student, funding the breakthroughs of tomorrow.

FUNDRAISING TARGETS

£600 supports a Research Network Volunteer for one year. With lived experience of the devastation caused by dementia, these trained volunteers read every research application that comes to The Alzheimer’s Society for funding, to ensure that research stays relevant, impactful, and life-changing for people affected by dementia.

£1,000 brings 1,000 people living with dementia together with their local services through The Alzheimer’s Society’s online Dementia Directory.

£7,125 can provide an entire community with a Side-by-Side site for three months. These sites support people with dementia and their families in local communities across the UK, making that crucial difference in breaking down isolation and loneliness.

£12,500 could help trained Dementia Helpline Advisors provide information, support, and guidance for nearly 1,000 concerned individuals.

£45,000 can help a research student kickstart their career for 18 months. Donations of this size enable The Alzheimer’s Society to recruit and train outstanding PhD students from the very start of their careers to become the dementia research leaders of tomorrow.

£150,000 could pay for 10,000 people living with dementia to enjoy a Singing for the Brain session: using singing to enhance communication, confidence, and well-being.

£600,000 could fund three research projects for three years, to give us a better understanding of the underlying causes of dementia in the hope of developing a cure for the future.

£1,000,000 would provide 32,500 hours of one-to-one support from a Dementia Support Workers – experienced professionals who are a lifeline for people with dementia and their families, meaning they do not have to face dementia alone.

Support the fight against the devastation caused by dementia today.

Enable research to find a cure for dementia tomorrow.
