Alzheimer’s Society responds to the death of Victoria Wood

Victoria Wood, award-winning writer, director, actor and comedian, has died aged today 62 today after a short battle with cancer.


'We are deeply saddened to hear that Victoria Wood has passed away. As one of the nation’s favourite comic writers and performers, Victoria was also a great friend and supporter to us at Alzheimer’s Society. As a keen walker herself she was instrumental in raising awareness of our annual fundraising event Memory Walk in 2013 to help support all those affected by dementia to live well and fund further research. 

 'Our deepest condolences go to Victoria’s family, friends, colleagues and fans.'
