Did you know that 800,000 people in the UK have a form of dementia, and more than half have Alzheimer’s disease? In less than 10 years a million people will be living with dementia. This will soar to 1.7 million people by 2051.
It is for this reason The European Software Testing Awards 2014 raised £2,650 to support the Alzheimer’s Society. We have set up a Just Giving page so that you can continue to donate to the the Alzheimer’s Society.
Jeremy Hughes, chief executive at Alzheimer’s Society, said, “We are delighted that The European Software Testing Awards is giving its time to support Alzheimer’s Society. One in three people over 65 will die with dementia. It is caused by diseases of the brain and can happen to anyone.
“As a charity, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses like The European Software Testing Awards to help us continue our vital work. Please back The European Software Testing Awards in its fundraising efforts so that Alzheimer’s Society can continue leading the fight against dementia.”
The Alzheimer’s Society provides information and support for people with all forms of dementia and those who care for them. The Society runs quality care services; funds research; advises professionals; and campaigns for improved health and social care and greater public understanding of dementia.
