Baking to Beat Dementia

Published: 18/03/2022

Alzheimer’s Society is calling on its amazing supporters to turn the heat up on dementia next month.

We are inviting fundraisers across the North East to get their whisks at the ready to ‘bake a difference’ for people affected by the condition.

Our ‘Bake for dementia’ fundraising campaign will run from April 25 to May 1, when we will be asking people at home, at work and in schools to help us to raise vital dough.

You can find out all about the fundraising drive by visiting our dedicated webpage – just go to www.alzheimers.org.uk/bakefordementia

Those signing up will receive a free fundraising pack full of everything they need to make the most of hosting their baking event – including top fundraising tips and lip-smacking recipes.

You can even take part without even getting your hands messy if baking is not your thing.

It’s all about getting people together to support the cause and to help fund our vital services, campaigns and research – so baking fakers are welcome too!

There’s never been a more important time for North East residents to show us their support.

People affected by dementia have been worst hit by coronavirus and Alzheimer’s Society’s services, including our Dementia Connect support line, have been used more than six million times since the start of the pandemic.

Two years on, we continue to be flooded with calls from people with the condition and their loved ones seeking vital support.

By signing up for ‘Bake for dementia’ you can help Alzheimer’s Society continue to fund vital research, campaign for change and provide support.
