We are raising money for Alzhiemer's Society Cymru
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.
Dementia is the UK’s biggest killer. Someone develops it every three minutes and there’s currently no cure.
They know it is scary facing up to it, but that we must confront the biggest health and social care challenge of our time.
As the largest and most influential dementia charity in the UK, they are calling on everyone to unite. Working together they know they will achieve their vision - a world without dementia.
