Your skydive could have a life-changing impact for people affected by dementia: 
 
£50 means 312 people can access Talking Point, our online safe space, where a trouble shared can become a trouble halved
 
£60  could pay for a blood test in a clinical trial that aims to find out more whether existing drugs could treat small vessel disease, a major cause of vascular dementia
 
£130 could fund one day of a talented PhD researcher's time increasing our understanding of the causes, prevention and treatment of dementia
