Every three minutes, somebody in the UK is told they have dementia. But dementia won’t win. Alzheimer’s Society is doing everything they can to find a cure, but they need our help. That’s why we are taking on this skydive!
Myself and Cian both work within the care sector, and deal with many adults with Alzheimer’s. Cian is a health care assistant in a care home, and myself a domiciliary carer. Our goal is to take part in this skydive and raise as much money possible not just our service users, but also for everyone who has had a family/friend battle with Alzheimer’s.
Our skydive will take place on the 22nd of October in Grange over Sands with Skydive Northwest, our goal is to raise £1000 for the charity. If you could donate we would be eternally greatful! We appreciate not everyone has the funds to donate with what’s going on right now, so even a quick share of our page will aid out support.
We are looking forward to our adrenaline rush, and we hope you are too!
Dementia is the UKs biggest killer, currently there is no cure. We know it is scary facing up to it, but we must confront the biggest health & social care challenge of our time. After Covid-19, dementia was the leading cause of death in the UK in 2020. We owe it to the 900,000 people across the country currently living with dementia, and their families, to spearhead a campaign for change, whilst providing vital day-to-day support now. By taking part and raising sponsorship, or donating to someone who is, you are helping us do this. Once you donate, JustGiving sends your money directly to Alzheimer's Society. It's the most efficient way to fundraise, saving time and cutting costs for charities.
