Sponsor My Skydive for Alzheimer's!

Me and My Nan
Late 2015 my amazing grandmother, Margaret Hammond, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, which is a very cruel form of Dementia and known as 'The Long Goodbye' for a good reason.


Once diagnosed unfortunately no support has been offered to inform my family of what to expect or how to help support my nan through this condition, which I find absolutely disgusting as I assumed the UK would have ample services to support the patient and their caregivers as it is a physically and mentally exhausting disease for all involved. 

The Alzheimer's Society are campaigning for the government to put more support in place and they also offer advice to families going through this and they fund research to try to cure this horrific disease, so please donate as much as possible.

Watching my nan deteriorate is one of the most painful things I've ever gone through which is why I feel so passionately about this cause.

I have decided to do the scariest thing I could think of, because my nan is going through the scariest, most isolating time of her life and whilst I cannot get inside her mind to help her, I want to try to do something that will scare me and hopefully raise money in the hopes less people will have to suffer the way she currently is. 

In order to get to do the skydive I need to raise a minimum of £395 though, so please donate anything you can and don't forget to share the link to your friends and family in case they want to help too.

My fundraising page can be found here , THANK YOU!






You can also help by donating other things to The Alzheimer's Society including:

1. Old Jewellery
2. Foreign coins
3. Used inkjet cartridges4. Old computers5. Old cars
If you have any unwanted or broken jewellery we can recycle it and raise much needed funds.
Do you have unwanted foreign coins lying around? Why not donate them to us.
We can recycle your old inkjet cartridges for money, rather than them being sent to landfill.
Recycling your unwanted computer is an easy way to raise money, and is environmentally-friendly too.
A great way to get rid of an unwanted car and raise money for Alzheimer's Society.
