This year you can support Alzheimer’s Research UK in an exciting new way – by donating your last hour of pay from 2021 to life-changing dementia research. Donate now by clicking here.
Scimitar have been the Official Merchandise & Kit Supplier to Alzheimer’s Research UK in a relationship now stretching over six years. This year, staff at Scimitar will be donating their final hour of pay to the charity.
Nearly a million people are currently living with dementia in the UK, a number that’s set to increase. That’s why Alzheimer’s Research UK needs help in order to bring about the research breakthroughs that will change lives.
And that’s where you come in! When you donate your last hour of pay, you’ll support research that could drive breakthroughs, power new treatments and improve the lives of people living with dementia. Your last hour of pay could be the difference.
Scimitar Client Sales Manager Richard Webb said: “Alzheimer’s Research is an incredible charity that is very close to my heart. Alzheimer’s is a well-known disease but one that needs significant and necessary research and breakthroughs to help future sufferers – and we at Scimitar will be playing our part in supporting the charity with the Last Hour of Pay initiative.”
Dementia research has been making huge strides, but with the pandemic delaying projects and limiting funding opportunities, it has led many scientists to consider leaving dementia research. Every hour of research lost puts critical progress at risk but with a small donation to end your working year, you can play your part in helping re-ignite dementia research and bring life-changing treatments a step closer.
When you make a donation your salary information won’t be stored, but your donation will have a lasting impact on dementia research.
Hope starts here with your donation and will, one day, end with a cure.
Alzheimer’s Research UK’s Last Hour of Pay website makes donating (and calculating your donation amount) easy. No salary information gets stored, they just take your donation and send you a thank you for supporting their vital work this Christmas.
On behalf of Scimitar and Alzheimer’s Research UK, thank you for your gift to the future of dementia research and have a very Merry Christmas!
