Friday, June 7th, 2019
This week we are supporting the Alzheimer’s Society and we hope that you will join us to raise money for this fantastic charity. Here at Alexander Hancock, we know the reality of supporting a loved one with this terrible disease and also the toll that it takes on the family and friends who are supporting a loved one through this difficult time, therefore we know the importance of raising vital funds in order to support this amazing charity in raising awareness, research into the disease and also provide help and support to the people who are living with the disease.
Dementia can affect people at any age. It is more common in people over 65 however there are currently around 42,000 people in the UK under 65 currently living with Dementia. It is not a normal part of ageing. A person may have problems with memory, language or concentration. It may also lead to mood changes, emotions and behaviours. Dementia is progressive, which means the symptoms gradually get worse over time. Dementia can affect many different areas of your life and the people around you which is why it is so important to help support this charity and the wonderful work they do in order to help prevent, cure and support the people who are suffering today.
We are supporting the Alzheimer’s Society Cupcake Day by holding a Cupcake week. All week, we will have a host of treats available for you. All we ask in return is for a donation. All donations are extremely welcome and we will be incredibly grateful for your support. £50 could enable the charity be there for five people, for five hours of in depth support from our Helpline team at a time of crisis. £150 could pay for two people with dementia to attend Singing for the Brain® sessions for one year, where they and their carers can come together for an hour each week to sing and dance to music. £610 would pay for a Doctoral Training Centre to run for one day, helping up to eight PhD researchers to carry out ground breaking study in dementia research. Help us to help them.
Thank you for taking the time to help us support the Alzheimer’s Society.
