Concert for Alzheimer’s Society Cymru

In aid of Alzheimer's Society Cymru

The RMA’s year of support for Alzheimer’s Society Cymru kicked off with a bang as the Radyr and Morganstown Alzheimer’s Society Volunteer Fundraising Group organised an opening concert by Cardiff Arms Park Male Voice Choir, compered by Frank Hennessy on Saturday 14 January at Christ Church, Radyr.

Alzheimer’s Society Cymru will now continue as the RMA’s charity throughout 2024 including the May Festival and Christmas Lights events amongst other smaller occasions through they year.

Alzheimer’s Society Cymru has a vision for a world where dementia no longer devastates lives. They seek to make one of the UK’s biggest killers less frightening, giving help to everyone living with dementia today, and hope for the future.

Dementia is the UK’s biggest killer.

One in three people born in the UK today will develop dementia in their lifetime. Yet it isn’t the priority it should be. There are currently estimated to be 900,000 people in the UK with dementia. Many undiagnosed and facing the realities of their condition sometimes alone.

Dementia devastates lives, but it’s not an inevitable part of getting old. We can do something about it. Funding new research means we can find life-changing treatments and cures. We can work with local and national government to deliver lasting change. And we can continue to help people living with dementia from day one. But we can’t do this without your support.

Arrangements for the May Festival are well underway and local residents will receive the printed brochure in the April edition of the Chain but details of individual events may start to appear on the Festival website sooner.

You don’t have to wait for further events to start, you can donate to Alzheimer’s Society and start adding to our total today –
