Spe­cial thanks from char­ity

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Special Report -

The Alzheimer’s So­ci­ety ar­ranged a spe­cial ‘thank you’ event for Mal­colm at Northumberland’s his­toric Hex­ham Abbey on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 1. The char­ity’s chief ex­ec­u­tive Jeremy Hughes, whowas at the event, said: “Mal­colm’s gen­er­ous gift is one of the largest do­na­tions the so­ci­ety has ever re­ceived from a sup­porter. “It will not only make a vi­tal con­tri­bu­tion to­wards ad­vanc­ing care and re­search for peo­ple liv­ing with de­men­tia, but will help to reach out to and in­spire oth­ers to sup­port our fight against this dev­as­tat­ing con­di­tion. “Thanks to his back­ing wewill be able to en­sure more peo­ple are aware of de­men­tia and the sup­port they can get.” The do­na­tion will sup­port vi­tal work at two Doc­toral Train­ing Cen­tres in Brad­ford and Southamp­ton, among eight such cen­tres of ex­cel­lence set up by the char­ity last year to ad­dress an ur­gent need for re­search into the di­ag­no­sis, care and treat­ment of the con­di­tion.
