People came from all over the country to join us in London on Saturday 20 September for our Supporters’ Day – including surprise guest Russell Grant! Yes, West End entertainer and former Strictly star Russell took to the stage at the end of the day. He spoke passionately about his support for the charity and how he cared for his much loved Nanny Alice who died with Alzheimer’s some years ago.
This was our first national Supporters’ Day and we were so delighted to welcome everyone. The event programme covered all aspects of our work and gave people a chance to meet our directors, hear more about our Defeat Dementia Campaign, to raise over £100 million in five years, meet one of our scientists and, very importantly, meet one another. We were inspired by the many ideas, questions and opinions contributed during the day. These will be carefully considered over the coming months – this feedback is invaluable to us.
We are hugely grateful to everyone who came along and helped make the day such a success. If you missed out this time, we plan to hold future Supporters’ Day with varied programmes – so watch this space!
