We have chosen to dedicate our Camino, because 21 – 27 May is Alzheimer’s Action Week  and because this charity is close to our hearts, we would like to raise awareness around people living with dementia.
 
Latest figure suggest 850,000 people live with dementia in the UK, with nearly 20,000 of these living in Northern Ireland. Across the UK, the vast majority (almost 95%) of those living with dementia are over the age of 65. There are, however, 42,325 people under 65 who have dementia. Dementia also has an interesting gender profile – currently, 2 out of every 3 women are living with dementia. Alzheimer’s Society provides further key data regarding current and future trends.
 
This page was raised in the hope we can make some small difference to finding a cure for this devastating condition.
 
During our Camino we will be thinking of all families living with dementia both past and present and especially our beautiful aunt Anne and musically talented cousin Angela.
 
Thanks for all your support in advance,

Peri, Liguori, Jim, Donal and Caiomhe

How it Works
  1. You are donating to PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538), which will email you a receipt for your donation and claim Gift Aid where eligible.
  2. GoFundMe’s platform is free. The charity will typically receive the funds from PayPal Giving Fund within 15-45 days of your donation if the charity has enrolled (or 90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled). Unlike other platforms, 100% of any Gift Aid will go to the charity as well.
* In very limited cases, a recommended charity may cease to meet PayPal Giving Fund's legal or other eligibility requirements. In such cases, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to a similar charity, and (wherever possible) seek a new recommendation from donors.
