This year 100,000 more people will develop dementia. Both of my parents died with dementia, so I know from personal experience the devastating impact this condition has on everyone touched by it – and how important it is to know that support is out there when you need it.
On Saturday 27 July, Alzheimer’s Society and its sister charities in Scotland and Ireland have the incredible opportunity to raise £100,000 to help people living with dementia – and need your help to do it. In fact, we need 1,000 volunteers to help us!
Please join our team collecting money at Argos stores right across the UK and Ireland. It couldn’t be easier – you can choose a store near you and donate just one hour of your time.
Argos is helping Alzheimer’s Society and its sister charities support people with dementia to stay in their own home and be part of community life for as long as possible.
If you can spare just an hour to help us collect, please get in touch today by calling 0845 678 7678 or visit alzheimers.org.uk/argoscollection – and ask your friends and family to support this important cause.
If you can’t help this time, you can find out other ways to get involved at www.alzheimers.org.uk/noplacelikehome.
Thank you so much for your support.
