Charities

The Sporting Memories Foundation
The Sporting Memories Foundation is a charity like no other. We support older people across the UK living with dementia, depression and loneliness by engaging them in social activities and helping them to recall memories of watching or playing sport. By sharing memories of sporting moments and tapping into a passion for sport we help people to connect with others and with their past, reawakening positive thoughts and feelings that otherwise remain hidden away. Our free weekly groups are available across communities and bring older people together to share memories of sport and take part in physical exercise. The groups offer a chance to stay connected - to family, friends and communities; to stay mentally stimulated and physically active, three core elements of ageing well and living well.
Race Against Dementia
We exist to combat dementia. Founded by Sir Jackie Stewart, Race Against Dementia raises money to fund breakthrough research that aims to prevent and cure dementia.

Hi, thanks for visiting my page.

I am a resident of West Dunbartonshire, birthplace of sporting icons Sir Jackie Stewart and Common Wealth Games Gold Medalist & Sporting Memories Ambassador Lachie Stewart.

To help the fight against Dementia and celebrate the part sport can play in this battle, i am undertaking a unique series of fundraising challenges to:

  • Raise awareness of dementia and reduce stigma
  • Raise money for both charities
  • Encourage people across the globe to get actvie and run with me either by joining me on my runs  or virtually through running apps.

My Challenge will be running 365 10k's in 365 Days as well as 27 Half Marathons.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
