Month 1 - February 2017:
Raising Funds for Alzheimer's Society
Alzheimer's Society is the leading UK care and research charity for people with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, their families and carers.
To witness the deterioration of a loved one is hard, and impacts on not just the individual suffering, but also the surrounding family. It can be a long, drawn-out process of grieving for the person who is lost, even though physically they are still with you.
Anything that can be done to help prevent or slow dementia is surely worthy of support.
Registered Charity No. 296645

Angelman Syndrome is a chromosome disorder causing severe learning difficulties, and leaving those diagnosed needing lifelong care and support.
