What is Remembering Not to Forget?
Remembering Not to Forget is a small charity established at the end of 2013 to fundraise to support people impacted by dementia.
Co-founders Laura and Ali both have close family members with dementia, and wanted to help other families affected by the condition.
In 2014 we undertook 10 challenges in 10 months to kickstart our fundraising, continuing with other challenges and events in 2015 and 2016.
We have raised over £22,000 so far.
Remembering Not to Forget provides funds to organisations which:
- Promote and protect the good health of people living with dementia, e.g. helping people with dementia to live independently for as long as possible, and as the disease progresses ensuring they have a good quality of life and receive high standards of care
- Provide support to families and carers of people living with dementia.
- Carry out research into the nature, causes, diagnosis, prevention, treatments and care of all forms of dementia.
- Campaign on dementia issues.
We support organisations working both nationally and those with a focus on Somerset and the South West, as both Laura and Ali are originally from Somerset. Read more about the organisations we are supporting.
