So next weekend I’ll be lacing up my hiking boots (June 19) and trekking through the night up Ben Nevis in a bid to raise money for the Alzheimers society and it is planned that we shall reach the summit at sunrise the next day, I’ll be doing this with a group of other fundraisers from The Alzheimers Society.
As I used to sit on the executive board of a care home I have seen first hand what a debilitating disease that Alzheimers can be.
More research needs to be done into this disease, which effects over 850,000 people in the UK alone. The Alzheimers Society does some fantastic work, and more local businesses should pledge to support them- Especially as 42,000 sufferers being diagnosed, are still of working age.
The organisers originally set a fundraising target of £400, the sponsorships have rolled in despite little effort on my behalf with being so busy the last few months. So far I’ve raised £600 and would love to hit £1000 for the charity.
The support so far has been amazing, and I cannot thank the people who have already donated, enough. To have already surpassed my original target which is unbelievable.
