This Saturday’s collection is being carried out by the Rotary Club of Scunthorpe Pentagon, who are collecting on behalf of the Alzheimer’s Society.
Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading dementia charity. We campaign for change, fund research to find a cure and support people living with dementia today.
Dementia is the UK’s biggest killer. Someone develops it every three minutes and there’s currently no cure. We know it is scary facing up to it, but we must confront the biggest health and social care challenge of our time.
