About Dementia UK

Dementia UK provides specialist dementia support for families through our Admiral Nurse service.

When things get challenging or difficult for people with dementia and their families, Admiral Nurses work alongside them. They give the one-to-one support, guidance and practical solutions people need, and that can be hard to find elsewhere.

Admiral Nurses are continually trained, developed and supported by Dementia UK. Families that have their support have someone truly expert and caring by their side - helping them to live more positively with dementia in the present, and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence and less fear.

We believe that everyone who needs the support of a specialist dementia nurse should get one, and we’re working hard to increase the number of Admiral Nurses across the UK. To donate to us, please visit www.dementiauk.org/donate. We receive no government funding and are entirely reliant on donations, including from people who leave us gifts in their Wills.

Dementia UK is a registered charity in England and Wales (1039404) and Scotland (SC047429)

Stratford 10k

My Grandad, Alf Wood, was a professional footballer starting his career at Manchester City FC. Then moving around many clubs, Millwall, Walsall, Shrewsbury, Hull, Middlesbrough and Stafford Rangers.
Following his football career, Grandad set up his own business and spent lots of time at the golf club and in the garden. Two of his biggest loves after his family and football! After being diagnosed with dementia 11 years ago, Grandad stayed at home with my Grandma looking after him full time with lots of help off those close to him. Sadly six years ago he needed specialist care and to be in an environment which could cater effectively for the needs of his dementia. He moved into a specialist dementia care home in Worcester.

I am hoping to raise some money, no matter how big or small to provide some help to those people who have been, are or could be in a similar position to what our family is going through. Dementia is an awful disease - to watch a loved one suffer, knowing there is nothing you can do to make it go away. The current statistics show that the equivalent of one person every three minutes develops dementia.

As with everything money is needed to provide care and arguably more important research with the hope that we can live in a world without dementia.

So, I'm not a runner... but I've watched Mark do a few 10k's and half marathon's now. I thought as I keep pestering him to do his runs for charity, I might try and take some of my own advice and do a run for charity myself!I've done a few parkrun's before, so thought it was more of a challenge to do a 10k run to push myself even more, and give me something to properly train for.
No matter how small please donate something to help fight this battle that so many people are going through.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all your support.
PS. 100% of donations go straight to Dementia UK, even better!

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
