McCartneys are delighted to announce that Alzheimer’s Society is our Charity of the Year for 2019. Working with our local community fundraisers Lisa and Helen we will be raising money and awareness throughout the year to support people living with dementia across the UK.
Dementia is the UK’s biggest killer. Someone develops it every three minutes and there’s currently no cure.
This is the biggest health and social care challenge of our time and we are determined to make a difference by raising money and awareness for Alzheimer’s Society.
Alzheimer’s Society is the only UK charity that campaigns for change, funds research to find a cure and supports people living with dementia today. They call for everyone to unite against dementia.
Local community fundraisers Lisa and Helen joined McCartney’s staff this week to film our official launch.
“We hear about dementia but like me many people don’t really understand what it means to those living with it and those caring for people with dementia. I was delighted to hear about the amazing levels of support Alzheimer’s Society gives to people.
Dementia doesn’t care how old you are. It’s caused by diseases of the brain so it’s not an inevitable part of ageing. Too many people are facing dementia alone and I hope McCartneys can help Alzheimer’s Society reach everyone with a diagnosis.”
Alzheimer’s Society aims to raise £1 billion over the next decade to support everyone who has been diagnosed with dementia.
McCartneys will be involved in fund raising activities throughout the year and we will keep you posted on exciting events in your area. By working closely with Alzheimer’s Society we hope to spread awareness of dementia and the fantastic support and guidance available to anyone who needs it.
