Supporting Dementia Charity Just Giving

Aside

It is with sadness that we are writing about this particular charity for personal reasons. We’ve been recently made aware that a former colleague in ALS, Anne-Marie has been diagnosed with dementia.  Anne-Marie’s daughter Cecily is doing the Memory Walk in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society and writes very movingly about her mother.

You can help Cecily Child raise money for this great cause by donating directly to their fundraising page –

JustGiving sends your donation straight to Alzheimer’s Society and automatically reclaims Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer, so your donation is worth even more. Thank you for your support!
