Tribute to AA Gill
We are deeply saddened to hear that AA Gill, Sunday Times Columnist and Alzheimer’s Society Ambassador passed away on 10 December.
Jeremy Hughes, Chief Executive at Alzheimer's Society, said:
'It was a privilege and honour to have Adrian as one of our most ardent campaigners and ambassadors. He used his wit and passion for fighting for the rights of people affected by dementia, and his talent for writing to tell their stories - he often spoke movingly of his experience of caring for his father who had dementia. From marching on Parliament in protest rallies to leading thousands in Memory Walks, speaking to hundreds gathered at gala dinners, or taking tea with a few people to engage them in our cause, his charm and commitment never wavered.
'We have lost a true friend and first class champion. Our sincere condolences go out to Nicola, his family and friends at this time.'
