Why Get Involved


In 2008, a blow to the family, friendship and business, co founder Margaret Locke was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, days before her 51st birthday. Leading up to the diagnosis, little-by-little, the Margaret they all knew and loved, slowly started to decline. No one knew what was wrong at first. It was a long, drawn-out process and in this time, Marg had become a shadow of the woman she once was. Our official lifetime partnership with Alzheimers Society is our way of making a difference, raising awareness and offering hope.


What Is Dementia?

  • Dementia describes different brain disorders that trigger a loss of brain function. These conditions are all usually progressive and eventually severe.
  • Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, affecting between 50 and 75 per cent of those diagnosed.
  • Symptoms of dementia include memory loss, confusion and problems with speech and understanding. Dementia is a terminal condition.
  • There are currently around 850,000 people with dementia in the UK. This is projected to rise to 1.6 million by 2040.

Why Donate?

  • Dementia research is desperately underfunded. For every person living with dementia, the annual cost to the UK economy is over £30,000 and yet only £90 is spent on dementia research each year.
  • There is no cure for Alzheimer's disease or any other type of dementia. Delaying the onset of dementia by five years would halve the number of deaths from the condition, saving 30,000 lives a year.
  • The total cost of care for people with dementia in the UK is £34.7billion. This is set to rise sharply over the next two decades, to £94.1billion by 2040.
