My story

[p]Thank you for taking the time to read this page. As some of you may be aware through the press, my darling wife Barbara was diagnosed in 2014 with Alzheimer’s disease and has been and is living with it along with 1 million other people to this day in the UK alone. To watch first hand as a loved one is slowly stripped of their memories and how they function in day to day life is a heartbreaking and often painful experience for any family member or friend as well as the person living with it, who at times can feel confused, disorientated, frustrated and afraid. And it has been no exception for Barbara. Barbara was fortunate enough to have had a career where she entertained people and has been able to have helped others in her numerous charity efforts and in some way her own involvement in The Dementia Revolution (www.dementiarevolution.org) is a continuation of that generosity of spirit to be of use to others. [/p][p] I will be entering The Virgin Money London Marathon 2019 (28th April 2019 and also my 56th birthday) in support of The Dementia Revolution in the largest push ever to raise funds to help research and find preventative measures and hopefully a cure for this awful disease. I will be joining a team of Barbara’s ex TV soap Eastenders cast colleagues (to be revealed at a later date) and together we hope we can with your support raise vital funds towards future generations being spared the painful experience that so many families have and will continue to experience. [/p][p]Please I am asking you to give as much or as little as you can spare and no amount will be considered too small! Every pound helps! Let’s all try and help find a day when everyone’s memories will stay with them for all of their lives and time with our loved ones can last longer. This effects all our futures. Thank you.[/p][p]Scott and Barbara are calling on people to run the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon for the Dementia Revolution, to raise desperately needed funds for the UK Dementia Research Institute. Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Research UK have joined forces for the Dementia Revolution campaign as charity partner for the marathon in 2019.
